1. See the heathen o’er the sea,
To their idols bending low;
Thither with its power divine,
Let the blessèd Gospel go!
Speed it on, speed it on;
Let salvation’s morning dawn!
Speed the blessèd Gospel on,
Till the darkness is all gone.
2. They have never, never heard
Of that better home above;
Let them hear the story told,
Of the Savior’s dying love! [Refrain]
3. As we hear it, o’er and o’er,
How our hearts with gladness swell!
Speed it to the farthest shore
Where the wretched heathen dwell! [Refrain]
4. Give a little, every one;
Freely give where much is thine;
’Mid the gloom of sorrow’s night,
Let the blessèd Gospel shine! [Refrain]
