1 Men of God, go take your stations;
Darkness reigns throughout the earth:
Go proclaim among the nations
Joyful news of heavenly birth;
Bear the tidings
Of the Saviour's matchless worth.
2 Go to men in darkness sleeping,
Tell that Christ is strong to save;
Go to men in bondage weeping;
Publish freedom to the slave:
Tell the dying,
Christ has triumphed o'er the grave.
3 What though earth and hell united
Should oppose the Saviour's reign;
Plead his cause to souls benighted;
Fear ye not the face of men:
Vain their tumult,
Earth and hell will rage in vain.
4 When exposed to fears and dangers,
Jesus will his own defend;
Borne afar 'midst foes and strangers,
Jesus will appear your friend,
And his presence
Shall be with you to the end.
