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
