Representative Text

1 Over the way some soul needs you,
Waits for a touch that is kind and true;
Close to your door there is illness and strife;
Go in God’s name with the water of life.

Go over the way to some soul today,
Go, carry the message without delay;
Go over the way where the skies are gray,
And tell of the Savior’s love.

2 Over the way deep shadows fall;
Answer the piteous, plaintive call;
Strengthen the soul, meeting troubles supreme;
Tell of the Christ who is strong to redeem. [Refrain]

3 Over the way some soul needs song,
Fighting the battle of right and wrong;
Go to the weary with heartening aid;
Carry the gospel of faith, unafraid. [Refrain]

4 When it is time for God’s “Well done,”
You will be glad for the souls you’ve won;
Often a moment, just over the way,
Changes unspeakable darkness to day. [Refrain]
