Representative Text

1 Go tell to souls benighted, of the Lord who came,
Speak His name—love proclaim;
Go tell the gospel story, that the lost may know,
Bring salvation near.
O bid them come repenting, bid them come today,
Help them say, "I obey."
Bear the blessed message, hasten now to go,
Go with love sincere.

Press onward ere the night is falling,
Onward, hear the Saviour calling,
Hear Him gently, sweetly say,
"I will be with thee alway,"
Peace and joy to bring,
Press onward, never danger fearing,
Onward, brightest hope is nearing,
Darkness shall no more enthrall,
Christ our light shall shine for all,
He shall reign our King.

2 In lands beyond the rolling of the ocean foam,
Wand'rers roam—bring them home;
O lead them to the Saviour and His pard'ning love—
He will give them rest,
And they who long have wandered soon will learn to see
How to be truly free,
Living for the kingdom of the land above,
Safe and glad and blest. [Chorus]

3 Go bear the joyful message ev'rywhere you may,
Work and pray—day by day;
Lift burdens from the weary, cheer the grieving heart—
Walk where Jesus trod.
O be a beam of sunshine that reflects His light,
Pure and bright, in the night,
Helping many sinners choose the "better part"
In the love of God. [Chorus]
