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.
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]
