Lyrics

Send the Gospel of salvation,
To a world of dying men;
Tell it out to every nation,
’Till the Lord shall come again.

Refrain

Go and tell them, go and tell them,
Jesus died for sinful men;
Go and tell them, go and tell them,
He is coming back again.

’Tis the Church’s great commission,
’Tis the Master’s last command;
Christ has died for every creature,
Tell it out in every land.

Refrain

Tell it out to China’s millions,
Tell it out in fair Japan;
Tell it by the mighty Congo,
Tell it in the dark Sudan.

Refrain

’Mid the lone Tibetan mountains,
By the Orinoco’s strand;
O’er the burning plains of India,
Tell it out in every land.
