Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to
support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.
Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most
complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not
come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold
a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.
So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even
small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.
Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your
tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE,
Grand Rapids, MI 49546.
On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
1 Go ye my servants, go ye forth,
This was the Saviour's charge;
Preach ye my gospel o'er the earth,
And to the world at large.
2 Make known to all the sons of men
The charge which I have giv'n:
This doctrine unto all explain,
Which shews the way to heav'n.
3 My spirit shall attend the word,
As ye do make it known,
And prove that I am Christ the Lord,
The Father's only Son.
4 As Moses and the Prophets said,
Long as they prophecied,
Complete redemption I have made,
When I for sinners died.
5 Teach all the nations ev'ry where,
The aged and the youth;
My counsels and my will declare,
And spread the gospel truth.
6 Bring life and peace into their sight,
Which they knew not before:
Turn them from darkness unto light,
From Satan and his pow'r.
7 This bless'd and sacred word of God,
Will give the troubled rest,
When publish'd to the world abroad,
Can make all nations blest.
8 O may that word of truth divine,
With all its bright displays,
In all our hearts with glory shine,
And make us heirs of grace.Source: Church Hymn Book: consisting of newly composed hymns with the addition of hymns and psalms, from other authors, carefully adapted for the use of public worship, and many other occasions (1st ed.) #CCCVIII
