I’ll tell to all that God is love;
For the world has never known
The great compassion of His heart
For the wayward and the lone.

Refrain

Till the whole world knows,
Till the whole world knows,
I will shout and sing of Christ my king,
Till the whole world knows.

I’ll tell of mercy’s boundless tide,
Like the waters of the sea,
That covers every sin of man;
’Tis salvation full and free.

Refrain

I’ll tell of grace that keeps the soul,
Of abiding peace within,
Of faith that overcomes the world,
With its tumult and its din.

Refrain

Eternal glory is the goal
That awaits the sons of light;
Eternal darkness, black as death,
For the children of the night.

Refrain
