1. Ye shall be My witnesses, was Jesus’ last command,
To every kindred tongue and tribe, in every clime and land;
Go, tell them of our Christ and say His kingdom is at hand,

Who will go and witness for Jesus?
Tell it out, tell it out, the blessèd Gospel sound,
Tell it out, tell it out, the news the world around,
Till the name of Jesus has been heard wherever man is found,
Who will go and witness for Jesus?

2. Jesus has commissioned you and me to go or send,
A messenger in His dear name, His glorious cross defend;
And He has promised to be with us, even to the end, [Refrain]

3. God has said be of good courage, neither be afraid,
Though mountains seem to hedge the way, He says be undismayed;
For Jesus is our captain and will always be our aid, [Refrain]

4. Hear the suff’ring millions crying for the living bread,
When Christ was here His words were, Let the multitudes be fed.
Then haste wherever man is found, for all His blood was shed, [Refrain]
