46. The Whole World

1 The whole world needs the gospel,
Good tidings from above,
The message of salvation
Of God's redeeming love.
O be it ours to send it
Wherever souls may be,
Across the hills and valleys
Across the rolling sea.

Chorus:
The whole world, the whole world,
Needs now the Word of Life so free,
The whole world, the whole world,
Needs Him who saveth you and me.

2 The whole world needs the gospel,
"Go ye," the Master said,
And when we do His errands,
In His own steps we tread.
For He came down from heaven,
To do His Father's will,
To seek and save lost sinners,
His work we'll follow still. [Chorus]

3 The whole world needs the gospel,
The Word of living light;
To drive away the darkness
Of sin's long, gloomy night.
We'll bear the blessed story,
Like morning sunshine fair,
We'll tell the world of Jesus,
That all our joy may share. [Chorus]
