181. O Zion, Haste

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 Behold how many thousands still are lying
Bound in the dark-some prison-house of sin,
With none to tell them of the Savior's dying,
Or of the life He died for them to win. [Refrain]

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. [Refrain]

4 Give of thy sons to bear the message glorious;
Give of thy wealth to speed them on their way;
Pour out thy soul for them in prayer victorious;
And all thou spendest, Jesus will repay. [Refrain]
