Eden R. Latta (1839-1915)

See the heathen o’er the sea,
To their idols bending low;
Thither with its power divine,
Let the blessèd Gospel go!

Refrain

Speed it on, speed it on;
Let salvation’s morning dawn!
Speed the blessèd Gospel on,
Till the darkness is all gone.

They have never, never heard
Of that better home above;
Let them hear the story told,
Of the Savior’s dying love!

Refrain

As we hear it, o’er and o’er,
How our hearts with gladness swell!
Speed it to the farthest shore
Where the wretched heathen dwell!

Refrain

Give a little, every one;
Freely give where much is thine;
’Mid the gloom of sorrow’s night,
Let the blessèd Gospel shine!

Refrain
