Tell it! Tell it out with gladness--
God's good news to every land,
sin forgiven, lives transfigured,
all in God's great loving plan.
In the Book is found the witness
to his mighty acts of yore:
listen, heed, obey, and serve him,
kneel before him and adore.
Lord, we thank thee for the treasure
hid within the sacred page.
We could be thy faithful heralds
to our deeply troubled age;
we would publish thy salvation,
ever on thy side to stand,
living, serving, giving, sending
life to quicken every land.
"Go and teach," thus spoke the Master,
risen victor from the grave.
Still he gives this great commission
to his faithful ones, and brave.
Go and tell the gospel story
of what all through Christ can be.
Send it! Send it to the nations
that God's love may set us free.
