Representative Text

1 Go home and tell to those you love
How Christ hath set you free;
The wondrous change which grace hath wrought,
Let all your neighbors see.

Go home and tell, go home and tell

That they may want Him too.

2 Go home and tell them how you met
With One who understood,
Who knew your need and saw your sin,
And shed for you His blood. [Refrain]

3 Go forth and tell to those around
That He can meet their need,
That ‘twas for them He came to earth,
On Calvary to bleed. [Refrain]

4 Go forth and tell to those afar
That they too may be blessed,
Till in the utmost bounds of earth,
Your Lord you have confessed. [Refrain]
