1 Go bear the joyful tidings
That first, on Judah’s plain,
Awoke the wondering shepherds
To praise Messiah’s name;
Exalt the King of glory
Who left His throne on high,
And came to earth a ransom
For guilty man to die.

Go sound the Gospel trumpet
Beyond the rolling sea,
From chains of sin and darkness
To set the captive free.

2 Go in your Master’s vineyard,
And labor heart and hand;
The word of life eternal
Proclaim to every land—
The sweet and precious promise
To all who will believe,
Free grace and full salvation
For all who will receive. [Refrain]

3 Go tell the broken spirit
That vainly sighs for rest,
There is a home in glory,
A home for ever blest;
Go bring the lost to Jesus,
His tender love to share;
Go forth to every nation:
Immortal souls are there. [Refrain]
