Christian brother o’er the main
Carry the news of Jesus;
Go where night and darkness reign
Lovingly haste away.

Refrain

Carry the news o’er waters blue,
Perishing souls are waiting for you;
Stretching their hands, they plead for light,
Blessèd Gospel light.

Onward quickly, hear their cry
Over the deep resounding;
Save the millions ere they die,
Earnestly haste away.

Refrain

Tell of Judah’s Morning Star,
Peacefully, calmly shining;
Spread its beams o’er climes afar,
Pray’rfully haste away.

Refrain

Christian brethren, preach the Word,
Publish a free salvation;
Lo, in Heav’n your bright reward;
Joyfully haste away.

Refrain
