Far, far away, in heathen darkness dwelling, [death and]
Millions of souls forever may be lost;
Who, who will go, salvation’s story telling,
Looking to Jesus, heeding not the cost?
‘All pow’r is given unto Me,
All pow’r is given unto Me,
Go ye into all the world and preach the Gospel,
And lo, I am with you always.’
See o’er the world wide open doors inviting,
Soldiers of Christ, arise and enter in!
Christians, awake! your forces all uniting,
Send forth the Gospel, break the chains of sin.
‘Why will you die?’ the voice of God is calling;
‘Why will you die?’ re-echo in His Name;
Jesus has died to save from death appalling,
Life and salvation, therefore, go proclaim.
