Representative Text

1 Brother, has Christ redeemed you from sin?
Has He brought peace and comfort within!
Does not your heart with gratitude move,
Move you to speak of His wonderful love?

Witness for Jesus, witness today;
Tell how delightsome and bright is the way,
Witness that all your sins He forgave;
Witness that Jesus is able to save.

2 Sunshine is beaming bright on your way,
Blessings from heav’n attend you each day;
Mercy descends in streams from above,
Brother, O tell of His wonderful love. [Refrain]

3 Wondrously fair, the smiles of His face,
Preciously sweet His quickening grace,
O what a Friend in Jesus you have;
Tell all the world He is able to save. [Refrain]

4 Tell out the joy that thrills in your soul;
Sing out the praise, to heav’n let it roll,
Honor the Lord, your faithfulness prove,
Tell all the world of His wonderful love. [Refrain]
