1 Some have never heard the story
Go and tell
Why the Savior came from glory
Go and tell;
In the lands of sin and night
They are waiting for the light
That will lead them to the right—
Go and tell, go and tell.

Go and tell, go and tell,
Tell to all the world the story;
Go and tell, go and tell,
Go and tell, go and tell;
Tell of Christ the King of glory—
Go and tell, go and tell.

2 In the loving name of Jesus
Go and tell
That sweet story of redemption
Go and tell;
There are many young and old
To be brought into the fold
Who have never yet been told—
Go and tell, go and tell. [Refrain]

3 There is One for sinners pleading,
Go and tell
He in love is interceding
Go and tell;
O the cross was crucified
For the world He bled and died
You can bring them to His side—
Go and tell, go and tell. [Refrain]

4 While the daylight hours are fleeting,
Go and tell
For the story bears repeating
Go and tell;
Shades of night are gath’ring fast
Daylight will not always last,
Life on earth will soon be past—
Go and tell, go and tell. [Refrain]
