95. Go Forth, Ye Heralds, In My Name

1 Go forth, ye heralds, in My name,
Sweet let the Gospel trumpet sound;
The glorious jubilee proclaim,
Where'er the human race is found.

2 The joyful news to all impart
And teach them where salvation lies;
With care bind up the broken heart
And wipe the tears from weeping eyes.

3 Be wise as serpents where you go,
But harmless as the peaceful dove;
And let your heav'n-taught conduct show
Ye are commissioned from above.

4 From Me ye freely have received,
In love, to others freely give;
Thus shall your doctrines be believed,
And, by your labors, sinners live.
