Representative Text

1 Christ’s messengers are going forth
His bidding to obey;
To spread his gospel o’er the earth,
Oh, speed them on their way.

Chorus:
Speed on, speed on Christ’s messengers,
And help them in his name,
As they to sad and weary souls
Salvation’s gift proclaim.

2 Speed on the herald of the cross
With tender words of cheer;
In lowly paths of toil and loss,
They follow Jesus here. [Chorus]

3 To dark and distant lands they go
To tell of Jesus there;
That all his saving pow’r may know,
Oh, speed them on with pray’r. [Chorus]

4 Speed on by ev’ry helpful deed,
Those who in Jesus’ stead
Go forth the famishing to feed
With heaven’s living bread. [Chorus]
