Remember all the people

Representative Text

1 Remember all the people
Who live in far=off lands,
In strange and lovely cities,
Or roam the desert sands.
Remember all the children
Who yet have never heard
The truth that comes from Jesus,
The glory of His Word.

2 God bless the men and women
Who serve Him over sea;
God raise up more to help them,
To set the nations free,
Till all the distant people
In every foreign place
Shall understand His kingdom
And come into His grace.
