P. M. Johnson

In the lands of pagan darkness,
Millions perishing today;
Knowing naught of Jesus’ goodness,
Naught of Christ, the living way.

Refrain

Millions calling; brother, listen—
Rushing, sweeping on to hell;
O’er the ocean let us hasten,
Christ’s redeeming love to tell.

Millions there in heathen blindness,
Going down to endless woe;
Knowing naught of Jesus’ kindness,
How He died, He loved them so.

Refrain

Millions there in darkness pleading,
Calling now to you and me,
Brother, are you even heeding?
Calling now they are to thee.

Refrain

Millions there in darkness dying,
Christ unknown, without a hope;
Brother, they to you are crying,
As they thro’ their darkness grope.

Refrain

Millions there, great temples thronging,
Seeking help of wood and stone;
Brother, they for help are longing,
Help that can for sin atone.
