522. O Zion, Haste

1 O Zion, haste, your 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.

Chorus:
Publish glad tidings, tidings of peace;
Tidings of Jesus, redemption, and release.

2 Behold how many thousands still are lying,
Bound in the darksome prison-house of sin,
With none to tell them of the Saviour's dying,
Or of the life He died for them to win. (Chorus)

3 Proclaim to every people, tongue and 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 man might live above. (Chorus)

4 Give of your sons to bear the message glorious;
Give of your wealth to speed them on their way;
Pour out your soul for them in prayer victorious;
And all your spending Jesus will repay. (Chorus)
