421. O Zion Haste, Thy Mission High Fulfilling

1. O Zion, haste, thy mission high fulfilling,
to tell to all the world that God is light,
that he who made all nations is not willing
one soul should perish, lost in shades of night.

Refrain:
Publish glad tidings, tidings of peace,
tidings of Jesus, redemption and release.

2. Give of thy strength to bear the message glorious,
give of thy wealth to speed them it on its way,
pour out thy soul for them in prayer victorious,
and all thou spendest Jesus will repay. (Refrain)

3 He comes again; O Zion, ere thou meet him,
make known to ev'ry heart his saving grace;
let none whom he hath ransomed fail to greet him,
through thy neglect unfit to see his face. (Refrain)

4. Proclaim to ev'ry people, ev'ry nation,
that God, in whom they live and move, is love;
tell how he stooped to save his lost creation,
and died on earth that we might live above. (Refrain)
