Representative Text

1 Go tell to the nations in darkness,
The story of wonderful love;
Christ died for their many transgressions,
And promised a mansion above.

Go tell to the nations.
Tell to the nations in darkness,
Go tell to the nations, of Jesus the mighty to save;
Go tell to the nations of him who hath borne all our sorrows.
Go tell, go tell.
He's victor o'er death and the grave.

2 Go tell them of Jesus their Saviour,
How much he hath borne for their sake;
How dearly and fondly he loves them.
Bids all from their darkness awake. [Refrain]

3 Go tell them the beautiful story
Of heaven's fair city of light,
How they may inherit its glory,
And walk with the angels in white. [Refrain]
