Tell Out, Tell Out The News (Now dawns the sun of righteousness)

Now dawns the sun of righteousness
And the darkness will never his brightness dim
True light that lights the hearts of men
Only Son of the Father Jesus Christ

Tell out, tell out the news
On every street proclaim
A child is born, a Son is given
And Jesus is his name
Tell out, tell out the news
Our Saviour Christ has come
In every tribe and nation
Let songs of praise be sung
Let songs of praise be sung!

Laughter and joy he will increase
All our burdens be lifted
Oppression cease
The blood-stained battle-dress be burned
And the art of our warfare
Never more be learned

So let us go, his witnesses
Spreading news of his kingdom
Of righteousness
Till the whole world has heard the song
Till the harvest is gathered
Then the end shall come
