James E. Seddon, 1964
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.
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?
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.
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.
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.
