Spread the Good News

Representative Text

1 Spread the good news of salvation,
News, O so wondrously sweet,
Unto the perishing round you
Gladly the story repeat.

Spread the glad tidings,
Spread the glad tidings,
Tell of God's infinite love,
Tell of a loving Redeemer,
Pleading for sinners above.

2 Spread the good news of salvation,
Many, perchance, have not heard,
Blessed salvation is promised,
Only believe in his word. [Chorus]

3 Spread the good news of salvation,
Loudly the message proclaim;
Tell unto all that he offers
Pardon thro' Jesus dear name. [Chorus]
