Go Forth and Tell

James E. Seddon, 1964
[Key: C]

Verse 1
Go forth and tell! O Church of God, awake!
God’s saving news to all the nations take.
Proclaim Christ Jesus, Savior, Lord, and King,
That all the world His worthy praise may sing.

Verse 2
Go forth and tell! God offers life to all;
The Lord makes rich all who on Him shall call.
How shall they call if they have never heard
The gracious invitation of His Word?

Verse 3
Go forth and tell! Men still in darkness lie;
In wealth or want, in sin they live and die.
Give us, O Lord, concern of heart and mind-
A love like Yours which cares for all mankind.

Verse 4
Go forth and tell! Christ charges us to go.
All power is His; from Him the blessings flow.
Live out your life as Christ your Lord shall choose;
Your ransomed powers for His sole glory use.

Verse 5
Go forth and tell! O Church of God, arise!
Go in the strength which Christ your Lord supplies.
Go ’til all nations His great name adore,
And serve Him Lord and King forever more.
