Words: Mary A Thomson Music: “Tidings,” James Walch From: Guitar Picker - www.gospelmusic.org.uk O Zion Haste Bb O Zion, haste, thy mission high fulfilling, Eb Bb F Bb To tell to all the world that God is light, D Gm That He who made all nations is not willing C7 F Bb C F One soul should perish, lost in shades of night. Chorus: F7 Bb F Bb7 Publish glad tidings, tidings of peace; G C C7 Bb F7 Bb Tidings of Jesus, redemption and release. Behold how many thousands still are lying Bound in the darksome prison house of sin, With none to tell them of the Saviour’s dying, Or of the life He died for them to win. Chorus Proclaim to every people, tongue, and nation That God, in Whom they live and move, is love; Tell how He stooped to save His lost creation, And died on earth that we might live above. Chorus ’Tis thine to save from peril of perdition The souls for whom the Lord His life laid down: Beware lest, slothful to fulfill thy mission, Thou lose one jewel that should deck His crown. Chorus Give of thy sons to bear the message glorious; Give of thy wealth to speed them on their way; Pour out thy soul for them in prayer victorious; O Zion, haste to bring the brighter day. Chorus He comes again! O Zion, ere thou meet Him, Make known to every heart His saving grace: Let none whom he Hath ransomed fail to greet Him, Through thy neglect, unfit to see His face. ChorusHome
