Representative Text

1 Great, and high, and holy, Lord,
Heav’n and earth are full of Thee;
Spread abroad Thy precious word,
Let the world Thy glory see.

Refrain:
Raise, raise the ensign far, far and wide,
Out over mountain, hill and plain!
Tell, tell of Christ, the Crucified,
Bring all the world to own His reign!

2 Why in darkness, still and deep,
Should the heathen nations lie,
Afric’s stricken daughters weep,
India’s sons no light descry? [Refrain]

3 May Thy Spirit pierce the gloom,
Scatter night and mist afar;
Save the heathen from their doom,
By the rising Morning Star. [Refrain]
