Representative Text

1 Send the message back to glory,
Precious souls for Christ are won;
Angels bright repeat the story
Of what grace divine has done.

Send the message back to glory!
Send the message back to glory!
Let its courts resound,
For another soul is found!
Send the message back to glory!

2 Thro’ celestial courts resounding,
Let the music louder swell;
As of mercy free abounding
Newly pardoned sinners tell. [Refrain]

3 Send the message sweet and holy,
To the blest around the throne;
Hardened hearts, now weak and lowly,
Have a change most wondrous known. [Refrain]

4 Send the message back to heaven,
Strife with unbelief is o’er,
And repentant souls, forgiven,
Trust in Jesus evermore. [Refrain]
