Representative Text

1. All the world for Jesus!
Be this our earnest aim;
To spread the blessèd tidings
Of Him who once was slain.

Refrain
All the world for Jesus,
Let ev’ry creature sing;
All the world for Jesus,
Our great eternal King.

2. All the world for Jesus!
Let each one pray and give,
Until remotest nations
Shall look to Him and live. [Refrain]

3. All the world for Jesus!
We’ll give, at His behest,
To raise the poor and helpless,
Till all have Christ confessed. [Refrain]

4. All the world for Jesus!
And Jesus for the world!
Forever be His banner
Of victory unfurled. [Refrain]
