Lyrics

Hear the Mas­ter as He bade fare­well;
This the mes­sage, Chris­tian, go and tell;
Tell the story of His pow­er to save,
Since His life He gave.

Refrain

Up and do­ing, at the King’s com­mand,
Everywhere will go the her­ald band;
Spread the Gos­pel, spread the Go­spel,
Send its light to ev­ery land.

Humbly list­en to the King’s com­mand,
Bear good tid­ings now to ev­ery land;
Unto all the world His word must go,
Blessing to be­stow.

Refrain

Onward march­ing, at the King’s com­mand,
Hasten, hast­en, in a work so grand,
Till the na­tions see the heav’n­ly Light—
Know His sav­ing might.
