Representative Text

1 Thus saith the Lord your master dear,
O ye his servants whom he sends
To preach his gospel far and near,
E'en to the world's remotest end.

2 Go forth ye heralds in my name,
"Sweetly the gospel trumpet sound;
The glorious jubilee proclaim,
Where'er the human race is found;

3 "Convince a world of sinners blind,
And show them where their danger lies;
The broken hearted careful bind,
And wipe the tears from weeping eyes.

4 "Be wise as serpents where you go,
Yet harmless as the peaceful dove;
And let your whole deportment show,
That you're commissioned from above.

5 "And as you freely have received,
E'en so to others freely give;
So shall your message be believed,
And many dying sinners live."

6 "Master, thy word we have obeyed,"
(Said Christ's sweet messengers of peace)
"And lo, the devils are dismayed,
Trembling they flee before our face."

7 Oh! if I had an angel's voice,
And could be heard from pole to pole,
I would to all the listening world,
Proclaim thy goodness to my soul.

8 O happy servants of the Lord,
Who thus their master's will obey;
Immensely great is the reward,
They shall receive another day.
