1 "Go ye into all the world!"
'Tis the loving Lord's command;
Let His banner be unfurled
Over ev'ry land.

Go ye, go ye, Preach the gospel to every creature,
Go ye, go ye, I am with you, alway.
Go ye into all the world, into all the world, into all the world,
Preach to ev'ry creature,
Go ye into all the world, into all the world, I am with you alway.

2 Go ye to the souls that mourn,
With the gracious gospel call;
Tell how Christ their griefs has borne–
How He died for all. [Refrain]

3 Go ye to the souls that grope,
Seeking light and finding none;
Tell them of the Christian's hope,
Tell what Christ has done. [Refrain]
