Representative Text

1 Preach the gospel as you go,
Anywhere, ev’rywhere;
Let the lost and guilty know
How the blood of Christ did flow,
Souls to save from death and woe,
Anywhere, ev’rywhere.

2 Sow the seed, the blessed seed,
Anywhere, ev’rywhere;
Tell how Christ can meet their need,
How the hungry He doth feed,
That He is a friend indeed,
Anywhere, ev’rywhere.

3 You shall find some fruitful ground
Anywhere, ev’rywhere;
Only let your work abound,
Faithful to the end be found,
Soon shall harvest songs resound,
Ev’rywhere, ev’rywhere.
