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.
