Go ye…and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Matthew 28:19

Rise! ye people, who have heard
The Gospel’s joyful call—
Ye on whom its sacred truths
Like dews of Heaven fall.
Rise and bear to distant homes,
Scatter wide o’er hill and plain,
Joyful news that Jesus comes
To reign on earth again.
Rise! and in the might of Him
Whose chosen ones ye be,
Bid the story of His love
Be known from sea to sea.
Rise in majesty and strength,
Go in consciousness of power,
And the barren plains at length
Shall bear bright Sharon’s flower.
On broad prairies stretching far,
On hill and mountain side,
And where swiftly running streams
Thro’ fertile valleys glide.
There the waiting people dwell,
Hungry, starving souls they be,
Longing for the fruit which fell
From life’s exhaustless tree.
Take to them the bread of life,
The living waters bear;
Feed the hungry, cheer the faint,
With them thy bounty share.
Then when time shall be no more,
And th’archangel trump shall sound,
They shall stand on Canaan’s shore,
Who life and peace have found.
