1 Men of God, go take your stations;
Darkness reigns throughout the earth,
Go proclaim among the nations,
Joyful news of heavenly birth:
Bear the tidings
Of the Savior’s matchless worth.
2 Of his gospel not ashamed,
As "the power of God to save."
Go where Christ was never named;
Publish freedom to the slave;
Such as Zion’s children have.
3 What though earth and hell united
Should oppose the Saviour’s plan?
Plead his cause, nor be affrighted:
Fear ye not the face of man:
Vain their tumult;
Hurt his work they never can.
4 When expos'd to fearful dangers,
Jesus will his own defend;
Borne afar, 'midst foes and strangers,
Jesus will appear your friend;
And his presence
Shall be with you to the end.
