Representative Text

1 Go, ye children of light,
Go and banish the night,
Go as heralds of Christ and the day;
Go, salvation proclaim,
In the Saviour’s dear name,
Go and drive all the darkness away.

Over mountain and sea,
Where the lost ones may be,
Let the news of redemption be told;
Till o’er valley and plain,
Our Redeemer shall reign,
And the wand’ring are bro’t to the fold.

2 Go, whate’er may betide,
O’er the desert so wide,
Bid the weak and despairing arise;
That each heart may enthrone
The Redeemer alone,
And to Him lift their sin-darkened eyes. [Refrain]

3 Where the sunlight may gleam
Over lake-let or stream,
O’er the wild, rough and lonely highway;
Go from shore unto shore,
Go in faith evermore,
Bear the light of the glad gospel day. [Refrain]
