Representative Text

1 “THE” call of God is sounding clear,
O “CHRISTIAN”, let it reach thine ear;
“ENDEAVOR” now of souls to bring
A band to love and serve the King.

Let us go forth!
The call is clear;
Let us go forth,
no tarrying here!
For Him to love,
the Christ, the Lord,
A crown from Him,
our high reward.

2 Let us go forth as called of God,
Redeemed by Jesus’ precious blood;
His love to show, His life to live,
His message speak, His mercy give. [Refrain]

3 Let “Christ alone!” our watchword be—
The Son of God who made us free;
He bore our sins, He makes us pure,
For His name’s sake we all endure. [Refrain]

4 Let “Christ of God to glorify,
His grace in us to magnify;
His word of life to all make known—
Be this our work, and this alone. [Refrain]
