1 The gospel word, so freely given,
Is full of life and love;
It shows the way that all must follow
To enter life above.

Refrain:
Then stand in the house of the Lord,
With the wonderful words of this life,
And speak to the people waiting to hear
All the wonderful words of this life.

2 It tells to all with faithful sayings,
The story of the Lord;
It tells his grace and all its riches,
With life in ev’ry word. [Refrain]

3 It bids us seek the waiting Saviour
With true, repentant hearts;
It bids us take the Gift of Heaven,
The Life that he imparts. [Refrain]

4 It bears to all the name of Jesus,
Who suffered to redeem;
It bears the plan of free salvation,
And life is all its theme. [Refrain]
