Daniel B. Towner


If it be true that the Father so loved
A world lost in sin and despair,
That He gave His dear Son
Upon Calvary’s cross,
That we life eternal might share,


Then tell it out! tell it out!
Tell the wondrous news around,
Till all the world, the whole wide world,
Shall hear the glorious sound!

If it be true that our sin He blots out,
And remembers against us no more,
That hearts are made white
In the blood of the Lamb,
And released from sin’s bondage and power,


If it be true that His peace He bestows,
A peace that the world cannot give!
That He giveth us richly
All things to enjoy,
And life more abundant to live,


Christian, make haste the glad message to give;
The King’s business brooks no delay;
God’s perishing children
Are calling for help;
Go tell them of Jesus today.
