Representative Text

1. If Christ the Redeemer has pardoned your sin,
Tell it wherever you go;
If into your darkness His light has shown in,
Tell it wherever you go.

Refrain
Tell it, tell it,
Tell it wherever you go;
If you would win others from sin and from woe,
Tell it wherever you go.

2. If now you are happy with Christ as your guide,
Tell it wherever you go;
If He is your friend, and with Him you abide,
Tell it wherever you go. [Refrain]

3. When troubles assail, do you trust in Him still?
Tell it wherever you go;
When sorrows o’erwhelm, do you sink in His will?
Tell it wherever you go. [Refrain]

4. If you are an heir to a mansion on high,
Tell it wherever you go;
Until you find rest in that home in the sky,
Tell it wherever you go. [Refrain]
