1 The whole wide world for Jesus!
Once more, before we part,
Ring out the joyful watchword
From every grateful heart;
The whole wide world for Jesus!
Be this our battle cry;
The Crucified shall conquer,
And victory is nigh.

Refrain:
The whole wide world for Jesus!
This whole wide world
For Jesus Christ, our Lord!

2 The whole wide world for Jesus!
From out the Golden Gate
Thro’ all the South Sea Islands,
To China’s princely state;
From India’s vales and mountains,
Thro’ Persia’s land of bloom,
To storied Palestina,
And Afric’s desert gloom. [Refrain]

3 The whole wide world for Jesus!
Its hearts, and homes, and thrones;
Ring out again the watchword
In loud and joyous tones:
The whole wide world for Jesus!
With prayer the song we’ll wing,
And speed the prayer with labor,
Till earth shall crown Him King. [Refrain]
