Representative Text

1 From the heathen far away—
Over the seas;
List! a voice we must obey,
Over the seas;
Go to all the world and preach,
Over the seas;
In the name of Jesus teach,
Over the seas.

Pity the heathen without the gospel light,
Pity the heathen in error’s night.

2 Thousands there in midnight gloom
Over the seas;
Bowing down to wood and stone,
Over the seas;
Send your money with your pray’r,
Over the seas;
Earnest men are lab’ring there,
Over the seas. [Refrain]

3 You can save a soul from sin,
Over the seas;
Souls immortal garner in,
Over the seas;
See them to their idols pray,
Over the seas;
Knowing not a better way,
Over the seas. [Refrain]

4 Hear the Great Divine command,
Over the seas;
Go and lend a helping hand,
Over the seas;
When the sheaves are gathered in
From o’er the seas;
Shall we bear a sheaf for Him,
From o’er the seas? [Refrain]
