Representative Text

1 Go out in the hedges and highways,
Go look thro’ the lane and street,
Go search in the alleys and byways
For tracks of the wand’ring feet;
Go, follow the mandate of Jesus,
Go seek for the erring and lost,
Go bring in the souls He has ransomed
At such a tremendous cost.

Refrain:
Go gather them in, go gather them in,
Those gems for the Master’s crowning;
Like stars they shall shine,
Your jewels and mine,
In the day of our Lord’s returning.

2 Go out in the world’s storm-swept garden,
Where blasted the blossoms lie,
And gather the fair fading flowers
For mansions beyond the sky;
The seed of the life that’s eternal,
That sleeps in the bosoms of men,
When touched by the breath of the Spirit,
Will bloom into life again. [Refrain]

3 Go search for the beautiful jewels,
In depths of the darksome mine,
Tho’ sullied with earth and with evil
The Saviour will make them shine;
O worker for Jesus! be earnest,
Bring in all the erring and lost;
Go rescue the souls He has ransomed
AT such a tremendous cost. [Refrain]
