Representative Text

1 Ye lands, where the flag of the Lord is unfurled,
Rejoice, for it soon shall encircle the world!
In glad invitation and soul-stirring song
The story of Jesus is sweeping along!

Chorus:
Sweeping along! Sweeping along!
In glad invitation and soul-stirring song!
Sweeping along! Sweeping along!
The story of Jesus is sweeping along!

2 The pow'r of the wrong shall at last be o'erthrown;
The nations in darkness for Christ shall be won!
All lands shall in chorus unite in the song;
The story of Jesus is sweeping along! [Chorus]

3 Go forward with courage, ye hosts of the King;
Press on till the world with his praises shall ring!
Fear not, for his kingdom is growing more strong!
The story of Jesus is sweeping along! [Chorus]
