1 Out in the highways, the lanes and the hedges,
Over the cold rugged mountains of sin,
There are the sheep from the fold that have wander’d;
Jesus commandeth to gather them in.
Tenderly, patiently, tell them the story
Brought by the angels from glory above;
Over and over its message repeating,
Woo them by kindness and win them by love.
2 Out in the highways, the lanes and the hedges,
Lift from the weary the burdens they bear;
Go in the spirit and strength of the Master!
Go and remember His children are there! [Refrain]
3 Pity the erring; we know not their sorrow;
Many are longing God’s grace to receive—
Longing to drink of the life-giving water
Flowing so freely for all who believe. [Refrain]
4 Save, or they perish! O, fly to the rescue!
Jesus hath purchas’d their ransom from sin!
Now to the arms of His infinite mercy,
Lo, He commandeth to gather them in. [Refrain]
