Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.@Matthew 28:19-20

Jersey City W. Irving Hartshorn, 1879 (🔊 pdf nwc).

When the Savior had arisen
From the silent grave,
Then He to His loved disciples
This commandment gave:

Refrain

Go ye, therefore, teach the nations
Of the risen Son;
Tell them of the great redemption
Sent to everyone.

Tell them of the night of sorrow,
In Gethsemane;
Show to them the weary footprints,
Up to Calvary.

Refrain

Go and tell them how I loved them,
Even on the tree,
How I thought of them with pity,
In death’s agony.

Refrain

Now to us this message cometh,
From the sinner’s Friend,
With the promise, I am with you,
Even to the end.

Refrain
