247. Go Ye into All the World

1 Far, far away, in heathen darkness dwelling,
Millions of souls forever may be lost;
Who, who will go, salvation’s story telling,
Looking to Jesus, minding not the cost?

Chorus:
“All pow’r is given unto Me,
All pow’r is given unto Me,
Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel,
And lo, I am with you alway.”

2 See o’er the world wide-open doors inviting,
Soldiers of Christ, arise and enter in!
Christians, awake! your forces all uniting,
Send forth the gospel, break the chains of sin. [Chorus]

3 “Why will ye die?” the voice of God is calling;
“Why will you die?” re-echo in His name;
Jesus hath died to save from death appalling,
Life and salvation therefore go proclaim. [Chorus]

4 God speed the day, when those of ev'ry nation
"Glory to God!" triumphantly shall sing;
Ransomed, redeemed, rejoicing in salvation,
Shout Hallelujah, for the Lord is King. [Chorus]
