Representative Text

1 Go spread the tidings far and wide,
Search out and bring the wand’rer home;
Go tell the world that Jesus died
To save and comfort all who mourn.

Jesus died for all, Jesus died for all,
Jesus died for all,
Jesus died for each, for every one.

2 Go spread it in the distant fields,
The news, the glorious news make known,
Till every sinner stops and yields
To Him who wondrous things hath done. [Refrain]

3 Go spread it, children, in your hearts,
Tell all that you have found the way;
The way the word of God imparts
To reach the shores of endless day. [Refrain]
