OH when shall the glad tidings spread

The spacious earth around,

Till every tribe and every soul

Shall hear the joyful sound?

Smile, Lord, on each divine attempt

To spread the gospel rays,

And build on Jesus Christ the rock,

A temple to thy praise.

Through all eternity to thee,

A joyful song we'll raise;

For O, eternity's too short,

To utter all thy praise.
