Representative Text

1 Preach the word, the holy word,
Lade with meat the heav'nly board,
Stewards of the store of God,
Sound the saving truth abroad.
You are sent the world to draw
To the Saviour and His law,
Praying them to leave sin's road
And be reconciled to God.

2 Preach the word, O ministry,
Let the earth salvation see,
Preach it, woman, child and man
Where you may and where you can,
Let no sluggish spirit bind,
Let not earth absorb your mind,
Keep salvation on your tongue,
Roll the Saviour's praise along.

3 Preach the word,'twill faith produce,
Turn the struggling captive loose,
Heal his pain and give him sight,
Turn his darkness into light,
Cheer his soul on heav'n's way,
Keep him watchful day by day,
Cause him happy here to be,
Save him for eternity.
