Representative Text

1 Pass along the invitation,
Whosoever will may come;
Pass it on, pass it on,
Pass along the loving message
Unto ev’ry thirsty one;
Pass it on, pass it on.

Refrain:
Pass along the invitation,
Pass along the word of God,
Until every tribe and nation
Shall have heard of Christ the Lord,
Shall have heard,
Shall have heard,
Shall have heard of Christ the Lord.

2 Pass along the cup of comfort
That the Lord has given you;
Pass it on, pass it on,
Other weary, troubled spirits
Need to taste its sweetness too;
Pass it on, pass it on. [Refrain]

3 Pass along each boon and blessing
That may come to you through life;
Pass it on, pass it on,
You may help the weary hearted
Who are faint amid the strife;
Pass it on, pass it on. [Refrain]

4 Pass along the watch word, “Courage;”
Soon the darkness will be o’er;
Pass it on, pass it on,
See, already dawn is breaking
On the bright celestial shore;
Pass it on, pass it on. [Refrain]
