Lyrics

Hear the Master as He bade farewell;
This the message, Christian, go and tell;
Tell the story of His power to save,
Since His life He gave.

Refrain

Up and doing, at the King’s command,
Everywhere will go the herald band;
Spread the Gospel, spread the Gospel,
Send its light to every land.

Humbly listen to the King’s command,
Bear good tidings now to every land;
Unto all the world His word must go,
Blessing to bestow.

Refrain

Onward marching, at the King’s command,
Hasten, hasten, in a work so grand,
Till the nations see the heav’nly Light—
Know His saving might.
