Representative Text

1 Go with the wonderful story,
News of his mercy sweet,
Down where the lost ones are straying,
Win them to Jesus’ feet.

Refrain:
Go with the wonderful story,
Tell it again and again,
Wonderful news! wonderful news
Jesus has died for men.

2 Go with the tidings of gladness
Many are they that wait,
Down in the sin-path’s dreary,
Go ere it be too late. [Refrain]

3 Go for his sake with rejoicing,
Carry the light of love
Into earth’s desolate places,
Point them to heav’n above. [Refrain]
