Speed away, speed away, Take the gospel of light

Full Text

1 Speed away! Speed away! Take the Gospel of Light
To the lands that are wrapped in the darkness of night;
“Go ye into the world,” ’tis the Savior’s command
That the light of the Gospel shine o’er every land.
Then, go forth in His name, and the Gospel proclaim,
Speed away! Speed away! Speed away!

2 Speed away! Speed away!
Take the message of Love
To the souls that know not of the Father above,
Who so loved this dark world that He gave His own Son,
Thro’ whose blood shed on Calv’ry redemption was won.
Let us haste while ’tis day, not a moment delay,
Speed away! Speed away! Speed away!

3 Speed away! Speed away!
Take the Word that gives life
To the nations in which Satan’s kingdom is rife;
For the Word if believed and obeyed will give peace;
To the captives of Satan it will bring release.
To the rescue make haste, there is no time to waste,
Speed away! Speed away! Speed away!
