9971. Lift The Gospel Banner

1 Lift the Gospel banner, wave it far and wide,
Through the crowded city, over ocean’s tide:
Sound the proclamation, peace to all mankind,
Jesus and salvation all the world may find;
Sound the proclamation, peace to all mankind,
Jesus and salvation all the world may find.

2 Lift the Gospel standard, spread the Gospel light,
Let the blessèd radiance flame o’er heathen night;
Love is God’s own sunshine, such as angels prove:
Conquer men by kindness, God Himself is love;
Love is God’s own sunshine, such as angels prove:
Conquer men by kindness, God Himself is love.

3 Let us rise to action, work with one design,
Work with Christ, and triumph in the work divine;
Victory’s palm awaits us, let us then work on
Till we hear the welcome, "Faithful ones, well done!"
Victory’s palm awaits us, let us then work on
Till we hear the welcome, "Faithful ones, well done!"
