Tell it to every kindred and nation,
Tell it far and near;
Earth's darkest night will fade with the dawning,
Jesus will soon appear.
Nations again in strife and commotion,
Warnings by the way;
Signs in the heavens, unerring omens,
Herald the glorious day.
Children of God look up with rejoicing;
Shout and sing His praise;
Blessed are they who, waiting and watching,
Look for the dawning rays.
