Earth, tell it out abroad;
The Passover of God!
From earth unto the sky,
With hymns of victory.

And earth her song begin,
And all that is therein ;
Their notes let all things blend,

John 11. 25, 26.
Christ hath broken every chain;
Hallelujah! 2 He who gave for us His life,
Who for us endured the strife,

Say, “ Peace be unto you-
The Scriptures to our mind;
Their hidden treasures find.
We commune through Thy Word,

Who see not, yet believe!
To Thee all glory be,

And look upon Thy face.
A gleam of glory lies ;
That veils Thee from our eyes.
And let Thy grace be given,
Our hearts may be in heaven. 5 That where Thou art, at God's right hand,
Our hope, our love may
