Representative Text

1 There is a story more precious than gold,
Wonderful message that cannot grow old;
Over the world must this message be told—
Go and tell others of Jesus;

Refrain:
Go and tell others of Jesus,
Go and tell others of Jesus,
Many in darkness are waiting for you,
Go and tell others of Jesus.

2 Hasten away while in sorrow they cry,
‘Tis for the Gospel they hunger and sigh;
Some one must tell them the news ere they die—
Go and tell others of Jesus; [Refrain]

3 Carry the message to those in despair;
Millions in darkness are needing our care,
While they are longing His blessings to share—
Go and tell others of Jesus; [Refrain]
