1 Lo, a voice is calling out across the waters deep and wide,
Who will go, who will go?
Tell the heathen of salvation,
Of the one who for them died;
Who will go, who will go?

Refrain:
Who will go, who will go?
With the gospel to the distant heathen land;
Who will go, who will go?
With the message of salvation grand?

2 O how long they have been groping in the gloom of sins dread night;
Who will go, who will go?
Hasten tell them of their error,
Let them have the gospel light;
Who will go, who will go? [Refrain]

3 Lo, the Master calls for workers to go forth at His command,
Who will go, who will go?
Do not tarry, do not linger,
Do not longer idle stand;
Who will go, who will go? [Refrain]

4 Consecrate your ev’ry talent, give the Lord what you possess,
Who will go, who will go?
They shall shine as stars forever
Who turns souls to righteousness;
Who will go, who will go? [Refrain]
