Blow Ye the Trumpet, Blow! (a.k.a. The Year of Jubilee Is Come)

Charles Wesley
(1707-1788)

Blow ye the trumpet! Blow
The gladly solemn sound!
Let all the nations know,
To earth’s remotest bound—

Refrain:
The year of jubilee is come!
Return, ye ransomed sinners, home!
Return, ye ransomed sinners, home!

Jesus, our great High Priest,
Has full atonement made.
Ye weary spirits, rest;
Ye mournful souls, be glad!

Extol the Lamb of God,
The sacrificial Lamb!
Redemption through His blood
Throughout the world proclaim!

Ye slaves of sin and hell,
Your liberty receive,
And safe in Jesus dwell,
And blest in Jesus live—

Ye who have sold for naught
Your heritage above,
Receive it back unbought,
The gift of Jesus’ love!

The gospel trumpet hear,
The news of heav’nly grace;
And, saved from earth, appear
Before your Savior’s face—1
