|Text:||Go, And The Savior's Grace Proclaim|
|Tune:||FAR AND NEAR|
1 Go, and the Savior’s grace proclaim,
Ye messengers of God;
Go, publish, thro’ Immanuel’s name,
Salvation bought with blood.
2 What tho’ your arduous track may lie
Thro’ regions dark as death;
What tho’ your faith and zeal to try,
Grim perils stalk your path:
3 Yet, with determined courage, go,
And, armed with power divine,
Your God will needful aid bestow,
And on your labors shine.
4 He who has called you to the war
Will recompense your pains;
Before Messiah’s conquering car,
The mountains sink to plains.
5 Shrink not tho’ earth and hell oppose,
But plead your Master’s cause;
Nor doubt that e’en your mighty foes
Shall bow before His cross.
