Representative Text

1 Go tell the great Redeemer’s love,
The Lamb of God, who died
That we might live in realms above;
Tell of the Crucified.

Go and tell the wonders of salvation;
Go and tell the riches of His grace;
Carry the tidings unto ev’ry nation;
Sound forth the great Redeemer’s praise.

2 Go tell the restless slaves of sin
That they may be set free;
That Jesus died their souls to win,
And bought their liberty. [Chorus]

3 Go tell the wretched, starving poor,
Of Christ, the living Bread;
And lead them to the open door,
Where famished ones are fed. [Chorus]

4 Go tell the weary, thirsting souls
Of living streams that flow;
Tell them salvation onward rolls,
Go tell the tidings, go! [Chorus]

5 Tell how He took away thy sin,
And how He gave thee rest;
How full of joy thy life hath been,
Since He hath made thee blest. [Chorus]
