Lelia N. Morris (1862–1929)



Of one blood God hath made
All the nations of the earth,

Over all His banner wide unfurled;
And He bids us to go
And His saving grace pro­claim
To the whole wide world.


For the whole wide world,
For the whole wide world;
Jesus dying brought a full sal­va­tion
For the whole wide world.

To the lanes and the highways
And byways we must go,
Till the pow’rs of sin are backward hurled;
And the streams of His grace
Shall for cleansing onward flow
To the whole wide world.


We must carry the Gos­pel
To earth’s remotest bound,
Men are dying for the precious Word;
Until every nation
Has heard the joyful sound
In the whole wide world.
