1. Ring out, ring out, O
A tale of joy your music tells;
A Saviour King was born today
To rule the hearts of men for aye.
For this we join to swell the strain,
The angels sang o'er Judah's plain!
Glory to God, good will to men,
Shall rise and fill the heavens again.
2. O Lord of lords, and King of
Sweet peace and joy Thy presence brings;
We know the Father loves us well
To rescue thus our souls from hell. Chorus
3. But who can measure all the
That brought Thee from Thy throne above,
With us to live, for us to die,
That we might reign with Thee on high. Chorus
4. Dear Saviour, Elder,
Abide with us till life shall end;
And then, when death shall set us free,
Within the kingdom won by Thee.
Earth's ransomed ones shall swell the strain,
“All worthy is the Lamb once slain,
Honour and glory to receive
From all created thins that breathe.”
