Of one blood God hath made all the nations of the earth,
Over all His banner wide unfurled;
And He bids us to go and His saving grace proclaim
To the whole wide world.

Refrain

For the whole wide world,
For the whole wide world;
Jesus dying brought a full salvation
For the whole wide world.

To the lanes and the highways and byways we must go,
Till the pow’rs of sin are backward hurled;
And the streams of His grace shall for cleansing onward flow
To the whole wide world.

Refrain

We must carry the Gospel to earth’s remotest bound,
Men are dying for the precious Word;
Until every nation has heard the joyful sound
In the whole wide world.
