544- O’er All the Land

MIDI MP3 Partition

1
O'er all the land have the signs now appeared,
Telling us soon our dear Saviour will come;
Long has the worn pilgrim watched, hoped, and feared,
Waiting for that blessed hope; 0 come, Saviour, come.

Refrain
Sound forth the tidings, long, loud, and clear;
Jesus is coming, and soon will appear;
All hearts respond as we long for our home,
"Quickly come, 0 blessed Jesus, come, Saviour, come!"

2
Signs in the sun and the moon and the stars
Faithfully show that the great day is near;
Nations distressed by the rumors of wars,
And the hearts of wicked men are failing for fear.

3
These, to the pilgrim, are omens of cheer,
Toiling and sighing in life's gloomy way;
All, all proclaim that the Saviour is near,
And the light is dawning of that soon-coming day.

4
Then let us rally, and fresh courage take;
Soon will we hear our dear Lord's loving voice;
Those who will now all their errors forsake
Soon the pearly gates will enter—sing and rejoice.
