1. Blow ye the trumpet, blow
The gladly solemn sound,
Let all the nations know
To earth’s remotest bound
The year of jubilee is come;
Return, ye ransomed sinners, home!

2. Jesus, our great high priest,
Hath full atonement made;
Ye weary spirits rest,
Ye mournful souls be glad,
The year of jubilee is come;
Return, ye ransomed sinners, home!

 

3. Extol the Lamb of God,
The all-atoning Lamb!
Redemption in his blood
Throughout the world proclaim:
The year of jubilee is come;
Return, ye ransomed sinners, home!

4. Ye slaves of sin, and hell,
Your liberty receive,
And safe in Jesus dwell,
And blest in Jesus live:
The year of jubilee is come;
Return, ye ransomed sinners, home.

 

5. Ye who have sold for nought
Your heritage above
Shall have it back unbought,
The gift of Jesus' love:
The year of jubilee is come;
Return, ye ransomed sinners, home.

6. The gospel trumpet hear,
The news of heavenly grace,
And saved from earth, appear
Before your Savior’s face:
The year of jubilee is come;
Return to your eternal home.
