1 From lands beyond the waters wide,
The message comes most clear,
That souls for whom the Christ has died
Await His word to hear.
That word is given us to send,
That vision ours today;
And countless knees to Him will bend
If we the call obey.

2 So many eyes are to us turn’d
With eager, wistful gaze;
So many minds for light have yearn’d,
And waited weary days.
Forbid it, Lord, that we withhold,
And fail to do our share
In sending forth our gift of gold,
Accompanies with pray’r.

3 Increase our vision, Lord; may we
Be guided by Thy pow’r
Our opportunity to see,
And seize the present hour.
To lands beyond the waters wide,
Send out the message clear;
That souls for whom the Christ has died
May now His gospel hear.
