His Last Command

Go ye into all the world Was Jesus' last command

Author: Clarence M. Seamans
Tune: ["Go ye into all the world"]
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1. "Go ye into all the world,"
Was Jesus' last command;
Let his banner be unfurled
In ev'ry darkened land.

"Preach the word," "repent, believe;"
Tell the world the Saviour's love;
Freely give as ye receive
Countless blessings from above.

2. To all the people preach the word,
Baptizing ev'ry one;
Linger not till all have heard
The message of God's Son. [Chorus]

3. Preach the gospel everywhere,
Till Christ to all is known;
Tell them of the mansions fair
Prepared for all his own. [Chorus]

4. "Lo I'm with you all the way,"
The blessed Saviour said;
To the realms of endless day
His loved ones shall be led. [Chorus]
