Representative Text

1 Go and tell to ev’ry tribe and nation,
From the mountain, valley, hill, and plain,
Jesus Christ has purchased your redemption;
Tell the story o’er and o’er again.

Go and tell it,
Go and tell it,
Jesus died for you and me;
Go and tell it,
Go and tell it,
Jesus waits to set you free.

2 Go into the highways and hedges,
Seek the lost one, weary and oppressed;
Tell them Jesus tenderly invites them,
“Come to Me, and I will give you rest.” [Refrain]

3 Hear the Master saying: “Go and tell it,
Teach My gospel, bid them all come home.”
Then when you have gathered up His jewels,
Hear Him saying: “Faithful child, well done!’ [Refrain]
