1 Go, messenger of Christ, proclaim
The glories of Emmanuel’s name;
The nations wait to hear thee tell
Of Him who saves from death and hell.

2 Go, armed with truth and filled with love,
Go, harmless as the gentle dove,
In wisdom and with burning zeal,
Go, and the way of life reveal.

3 Go, clothed in majesty divine,
Go, and thy grace with glory shine;
Go, while the Spirit’s quickening power
Doth fit thee for each trying hour.

4 And when against thee foes shall rise
And former friends shall thee despise;
Remember that the Lord will be
A comfort and defense for thee.

5 And when thy work on earth is o’er,
And thou shalt preach to men no more,
Unceasing joys shall thee await
In thine eternal blest estate.
