355. The Whole Wide World for Jesus!

1 The whole wide world for Jesus!
This shall our watchword be,
Upon the highest mountain,
Down by the widest sea.
The whole wide world for Jesus!
To Him shall all men bow;
In city or in prairie,
The world for Jesus now.

Refrain:
The whole wide world, the whole wide world!
Proclaim the Gospel tidings thro' the whole wide world!
Lift up the cross of Jesus, His banner be unfurled,
Till every tongue confess Him thro' the whole wide world.

2 The whole wide world for Jesus!
Inspires us with the thought
That every son of Adam
Hath by His love been bought.
The whole wide world for Jesus!
O faint not by the way!
The cross shall surely conquer
In this our glorious day. [Refrain]

3 The whole wide world for Jesus!
The marching order sound;
Go ye and preach the gospel
Wherever man is found.
The whole wide world for Jesus!
Our banner is unfurled;
We battle now for Jesus,
And faith demands the world. [Refrain]
