1 In lands far away o’er the sea,
There are nations who never have heard
Any mention, dear Savior, of Thee,
And we long so to send them the word.

Refrain:
Blessèd Word, blessèd Word,
Thou’rt life to the soul that has heard;
Blessèd Word, blessèd Word,
Blessèd Word,
Thou’rt life to the soul that has heard.

2 They bow to their idols of stone,
To their idols of silver and gold;
But to worship the Savior alone
They never, alas! have been told. [Refrain]

3 In sorrow they pass to the grave,
Thro’ the valley of sin and of woe;
Yet our Jesus is waiting to save
If only to Him they will go. [Refrain]

4 His servants are hastening to bear
Precious tidings of life o’er the sea;
We will join them in labor and prayer,
Happy workers for Jesus are we. [Refrain]
