Representative Text

1 Millions now are dying, dying in their sin;
Hell a foul mouth is open, taking millions in;
Midnight darkness deepens, thick and black the gloom;
Souls are rushing onward, heedless of their doom.

Refrain:
“Wake them up! wake them up!”
Shout salvation’s song!
“Wake them up! wake them up!”
Pass this message on.

2 Millions now are sleeping, sleeping at their ease,
While the few are fighting battles on their knees;
Carnal comfort darkens ev’ry ray of light—
Oh, their souls are rushing on to endless night! [Refrain]

3 Millions in the homeland, far away from God,
They will never travel where His feet have trod;
Lift up high the banner, “Jesus saves from sin;”
Open wide the portal, bid them enter in. [Refrain]

4 Millions are in darkness, far across the sea,
Helplessly imploring aid from you and me;
God is calling, “Onward! Onward in the fight!”
Tell the gospel story, shed abroad its light. [Refrain]

5 Millions are not ready for our Lord’s return;
Onward with the message, let the true light burn;
Sing aloud His praises, send it on the wing,
Jesus Christ of Naz’reth is our coming King.

“Wake them up! wake them up!”
Hast’ning to their doom;
“Wake them up! wake them up!”
Christ is coming soon.
