Representative Text

1 O’er the wide ocean where tempests are raging,
Into the dark lands of night and of wrong;
Go bear the glad tidings, ye heralds of Jesus,
To souls that in darkness are waiting so long.

Refrain:
Go bear the glad tidings!
Go tell the glad story!
To souls that in darkness are waiting so long.
Go bear the glad tidings!
Go tell the glad story!
To souls that in darkness are waiting so long.

2 Waft the glad tidings to nations in darkness;
Treasures of mercy to penitents bring;
Till isles of the ocean shall wake from their slumber;
And join in the praises of Jesus our king. [Refrain]

3 Glory’s bright morning shall break o’er the nations;
Millions shall join in the glorified song;
Go bear the glad tidings far o’er the wide ocean,
And haste where the captives are waiting so long. [Refrain]
