Representative Text

1 “Go to all the world and preach the gospel,”
Was the last commandment of the Master;
And the answer comes from ev’ry nation;
“We are dying, send the gospel faster.”

Faster, faster, faster!
Save, oh, save them from disaster;
Hear their pleading cry;
Help them ere they die;
Who will answer,
“Here am I, send me, send me.”

2 As men swiftly fly on wings of mercy
Where some tidings come of dire disaster;
So, before a thousand millions perish,
Let us haste to send the gospel faster. [Chorus]

3 Oh, how much we spend for earthly trifles,
And neglect the need that’s so much vaster;
Was us, Master, from our guilty trifling,
Help us send the gospel faster, faster. [Chorus]
