Hymnary Friends,

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.
Harry Plantinga

Go ye, my servants, go ye forth

Go ye, my servants, go ye forth

Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

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.
