Representative Text

1. Go forth with joy and gladness,
Go forth with love and song;
All honor, praise and glory
To Christ our Lord belong.

He has redeemed us by His blood.
Redeemed us from our sin;
Gather all the lost ones to His fold,
O haste, and bring them in.

2. Go forth with joy and gladness,
And spread the news afar;
Behold, He sends before us
A bright and lovely star. [Refrain]

3. Go forth with joy and gladness,
Proclaim the welcome sound,
Till all shall hear the story
To earth’s remotest bound. [Refrain]
