Go ye into all the world, and preach the Gospel to every creature.@Mark 16:15

J. Dempster Hammond, 1880.

John H. Maunder, 1894 (🔊 pdf nwc).

The whole wide world for Jesus!
This shall our watchword be;
Upon the highest mountain,
Down by the widest sea;
The whole wide world for Jesus!
To Him shall all men bow,
In city or in prairie,
The world for Jesus now!

Refrain

The whole wide world,
The whole wide world,
Proclaim the Gospel tidings through
The whole wide world;
Lift up the cross of Jesus,
His banner be unfurled,
Till every tongue confess Him through
The whole wide world!

The whole wide world for Jesus!
Inspires us with the thought
That all God’s wandering children
Have by His love been sought.
The whole wide world for Jesus!
O faint not by the way!
The cross shall surely conquer
In this our glorious day.

Refrain

The whole wide world for Jesus!
The marching order sound;
Go ye and preach the Gospel
Wherever man is found.
The whole wide world for Jesus!
Ride forth, O conquering king,
Through all the mighty nations
The world to glory bring!

Refrain
