43. The wide world for Jesus

1 The whole wide world for Jesus!
For His is its domain,
And His is the dominion,
From sea to sea to reign;
To Him the kings of Sheba
Their royal gifts shall bring,
And isles afar their tribute,
Shall render to their King.

2 The whole wide world for Jesus!
O Church of Christ, awake!
Put on thy strength, O Zion,
Thy posts of duty take;
Go forth upon thy mission,
In Jesus’ name alone,
Till earth, with all her millions,
His sov’reignty shall own.

3 The whole wide world for Jesus!
Rejoice, ye saints, anew!
For brightly scenes prophetic
Are looming into view;
The world from sleep is waking,
To sink in night no more,
For Jesus soon, triumphant,
Shall reign from shore to shore.
