Representative Text

1 There are lands so full of darkness,
They know not of the Light
That for all the world is shining
To make each pathway bright.

Bear the torch of the Lord thro’ the darkness,
Let the light of God shine in,
Tell them all of our dear loving Saviour,
Who has come to redeem them from sin.

2 Who will go to tell the story
To lands across the sea?
Who will bear the blessed tidings,
And set the captives free? [Refrain]

3 Who will wear the crown of glory
That God will give to him?
Who will hasten to the heathen,
To save them from their sin? [Refrain]
