1 Send forth, O Lord, to ev'ry place
Swift messengers before your face,
The heralds of your wondrous grace,
Where you yourself will come.

2 Send men whose eyes have seen the King,
Men in whose ears his sweet words ring;
Send them your lost ones home to bring;
Send them where you will come --

3 To bring good news to souls in sin,
The bruised and broken hearts to win,
In ev'ry place to bring them in
Where you yourself will come.

4 Since you have died, your vict'ry claim;
Assert, O Christ, your glory's name;
And far to lands of pagan shame
Send men where you will come.

5 Arm each one with the Spirit's sword,
The sword of your own deathless Word,
And make them conqu'rors, conqu'ring Lord,
Where you yourself will come.
