Representative Text

1 Go and seek the lost and dying:
Preach the world's glad jubilee:
Like the herald angels, flying,
Bear God's message o'er the sea;
Toil for Jesus,
Till the blind His glory see,
Toil for Jesus,
Till the blind His glory see.

2 Go and tell the blessed story
Of the holy Lamb of God:
Show the poor His grace and glory;
Lead the dying to His blood,
Ever crying,
O behold the Lamb of God!
Ever crying,
O behold the Lamb of God!

3 May the peace of God attend you,
As you gather precious spoil;
May His arms of love defend you.
All assaults of evil foil.
May His presence
Cheer you on the field of toil,
May His presence
Cheer you on the field of toil.

4 Fare you well! whate'er betide you.
Look to Jesus for His grace:
He will comfort, cheer, and guide you.
Till at last, in His embrace,
Safe forever,
You shall see Him face to face,
Safe forever,
You shall see Him face to face.

Amen.
