1 Brother, hear the cry from the dark domain,
Where they have no knowledge of the Savior’s name;
See the darkening night, hear the plaintive cry,
Send us now the Gospel, or our souls must die.

Refrain:
Brother, they are crying, crying unto you,
"Save us from eternal shame";
Trembling on the brink of the world of woe,
Dying for the knowledge of the Savior’s name.

2 Dying all unconscious of the deadly ill;
Frenzied by the fever of the fatal chill;
Blinded by deception of the world’s dread foe;
Standing on the margin of eternal woe. [Refrain]

3 Sadly they are crying, tho’ no voice we hear;
Sinking to perdition, yet they feel no fear;
Silently they’re pleading by their sin and shame,
Crying for the knowledge of the Savior’s name. [Refrain]

4 Christian, you have feasted on the Savior’s love,
Tasted of the pleasures of the world above;
Will you with indifference hear your brother’s cry,
"Send us now the Gospel, or our souls must die"? [Refrain]
