731. O Christians, Haste

1 O Christians, haste, your mission high fulfilling,
to tell to all the world that God is Light;
that he who made all nations is not willing
one soul should perish, lost in shades of night.

[Refrain:]
Publish glad tidings, tidings of peace,
tidings of Jesus, redemption, and release.

2 Proclaim to every people, tongue, and nation
that God, in whom they live and move, is love;
tell how he stooped to save his lost creation,
and died on earth that we might live above. (Refrain)

3 Send heralds forth to bear the message glorious;
give of your wealth to speed them on their way;
pour out your soul for them in prayer victorious,
all your spending Jesus will repay. (Refrain)
