Representative Text

1 All who know the Saviour’s name,
Live to spread his glory;
To the world his grace proclaim,
Tell the blessed story,
Of the precious Saviour’s wondrous love,
How his life he gave us,
Sing the happy song,
Send the news along,
Jesus came to save us.

Refrain:
Telling his salvation,
Offer’d now to all,
Peace and consolation,
When we heed his call,
Hearts with joy abounding,
Songs of gladness raise.
Prince of Peace, Immanuel,
Thy name we praise.
All who know the Saviour’s name,
Live to spread his glory;
To the world his grace proclaim,
Tell the blessed story,
Of the precious Saviour’s wondrous love,
How his life he gave us,
Sing the happy song,
Send the news along,
Jesus came to save us.

2 Go, wherever he shall lead,
Joy to others bringing,
Tell of grace for ev’ry need,
When to Jesus clinging,
O, the happy life that he will give,
Precious gifts bestowing;
Strength for ev’ry day,
Light upon the way,
Tender mercy showing. [Refrain]

3 As a herald of the King,
Go, his way preparing,
Joyful carols ever sing,
Of his gentle caring;
Till the weary listen with delight,
To the blessed story,
Till with us they raise,
Grateful songs of praise,
To the King of Glory. [Refrain]
