The heathen perish;--day by day,
Thousands on thousands pass away!
O Christians! to their rescue fly,
Preach Jesus to them ere they die.
Wealth, labour, talents, freely give,
Yea, life itself, that they may live;
What hath your Saviour done for You?
And what for Him will ye not do?
Thou Spirit of the Lord, go forth,
Call in the south, wake up the north;
Of every clime, from sun to sun,
Gather God's children into one.
Sacred Poems and Hymns
The heathen perish: day by day. J. Montgomery. Missions.] First printed in the Sheffield Iris newspaper, of which Montgomery was the proprietor and editor, on the 20th April, 1824, in 3 stanzas of 4 lines. It was repeated in Montgomery's Christian Psalmist, 1825, No. 551, and again in his Original Hymns, 1853, No. 256. It is given in comparatively few modern hymn-books.
