161. Bear the Message Onward

1 Bear the message onward,
Spread it far and wide;
Let the distant nations
Know that Jesus died,—
Died that God might justly
Sinners now forgive;
Died that through His merit
Guilty man might live.

Refrain:
Bear the message onward,
Spread it far and wide;
Let the distant nations
Know that Jesus died.

2 Bear the message onward,
Over land and sea;
Nothing save the Gospel
Makes men noble, free;
Spread, O spread the teaching
Fraught with endless bliss;
Angels well might covert
Work so grand as this. [Refrain]

3 Bear the message onward,
‘Tis so grandly true;
Wheresoe’er it cometh,
Eden blooms anew;
Work performed for Jesus
Cannot go unblessed;
Not till life is ended
Must God’s servants rest. [Refrain]
