Representative Text

1 Send the gospel message over land and sea,
Strike the chains of darkness, set the captive free;
Be the work of mercy earnestly begun,
Tell to ev’ry creature what the Lord has done.

Send the blessed news,
On the wings of faith and earnest prayer;
Send the news, the blessed news!
Into all the world the tidings bear.

2 Need we cross the sea the labor to begin,
While around us souls are dying in their sin?
‘Neath the very shadows of our sacred spires
See the smoke of incense rise from Pagan fires. [Refrain]

3 Into all the world, go, preach the word of peace,
Work, and watch, and pray, His kingdom to increase.
Give of time and talent, give of earthly store,
Send the blessed news: “God reigns from shore to shore.” [Refrain]
