1 Carry the message with you,
That a lost world may know
Story of Jesus most precious,
Tell it wherever you go.

Tell it where’er you go,
Tell it where’er you go,
Publish the news of salvation,
Tell it wherever you go.

2 Tell of His birth so lowly,
Tell how He walked the sea,
Tell how He taught His disciples
Down by the blue Galilee. [Refrain]

3 Tell of the cruel mockings,
Tell of Gethsemane,
Tell how He died on Mount Calv’ry,
Died there for you and for me. [Refrain]

4 Tell where at last they laid Him,
There in the rock-hewn grave;
Tell how He came from triumphant,
Jesus, the Mighty to save! [Refrain]

5 Tell of His wondrous ascension,
Into the heav’n of blue,
Tell of His coming again soon,
coming for me and for you. [Refrain]
