1 Words of love from above
Jesus has bro't to the world;
Men from sin it shall win,
Evil aside shall be hurled;
Souls in need ever plead
Down in the lowlands of night;
Let them hear words of cheer,
Tell then the message of light.

Chorus:
Tell it and sing it from day unto day, (Tell it day by day,)
While you are passing along; (As you press along;)
Sing it to sinners who fall by the way, (Sing it along the way,)
Spread it in story and song; (Spread it in happy song;)
It is the message of Jesus to men, ('Tis God's message sweet,)
Bro't from His kingdom above; (Bro't from His home above;)
Tell it and sing it again and again, (Tell it with joy again,)
Wonderful message of love.

2 Cheer and peace shall increase
Where the glad message is told;
It shall lead souls in need
Into the Shepherd's own fold;
Give it out, sing and shout,
Spread it with voices of joy;
Let it ring for the King,
Nothing its pow'r shall destroy. [Chorus]

3 It imparts joy to hearts
Weary and burdened and worn,
Souls in need it will lead
Out of the night into morn;
Labor still with a will,
True to the Master remain;
Then at last, trials past,
Heaven's bright crown you shall gain. [Chorus]
