Representative Text

1 Tell them in the east and in the west,
Tell them of the one you love the best.
Tell them how to find the sweetest rest
Leaning on the loving Saviour’s breast.
Tell them all about the dear old book,
Tell them there is life just for a look;
Let this banner be unfurled:
Christ for the whole wide world.

Refrain:
Tell them of the baby in the manger laid,
Sent from Heaven above;
Tell them how for them he was a ransom paid,
Just because of love.
Tell them with your lips and by your actions too,
And with flag unfurled,
Tell it out with a shou I, tell it out with a shout:
Christ for the whole wide world.

2 To the beat of Army drums, make known
That the Saviour-King has sin o’erthrown;
Tell the rich and poor, the sad and lone,
Till his power to everyone is shown.
Tell it to the people you may meet,
Tell it in the hall and in the street;
Let this banner be unfurled:
Christ for the whole wide world.

3 Tell it to the young and to the old,
Tell them they may all be warriors bold,
Tell them of the shepherd and the fold,
Tell them of the heavenly harps of gold.
Tell it with a clarion voice so clear,
Let the story ring out far and near,
Let this banner be unfurled:
Christ for the whole wide world.
