1 Send the glad tidings far o’er the sea,
Shout the glad news on shore and o’er lea—
News of salvation, so full and so free—
The heaven-born message of love.
Wonderful news! wonderful news!
Wafting now sweetly over the tide,
Telling of Jesus, the Crucified—
Wonderful message of love.
2 Quickly go tell of the living bread,
Sent unto all the Saviour hath said;
Let the world’s famishing souls be fed—
Go bearing His message of love. [Refrain]
3 Millions now groping in sorrow’s night,
Pleading, await the heavenly light.
Souls that are precious in Jesus’ sight
Must hear His sweet message of love. [Refrain]
4 Tell them how Jesus on Calv’ry died,
Show them the fount that’s e’er open wide,
Bearing abroad on its flowing tide,
A wonderful message of love. [Refrain]Source: Crowning Day No. 2 #137
