1 Forth He came, the risen Lord,
Grandly of His own accord;
Lying lips had dared to say
Thieves had stolen Him away.
Forth He came, and His the name,
Swells our song with glad acclaim.

Refrain:
Always near, blessèd Lord,
Needed cheer to afford,
Let His name be adored,
Risen Jesus, blessèd Lord.

2 Sound His praises far and wide,
Tell of Jesus who has died,
Trumpet no uncertain sound,
On the world’s great battle ground;
He’ll o’erthrow the fiercest foe,
Ever fallen man can know. [Refrain]

3 Go to distant heathen lands,
Valleys, jungles, burning sands,
Freely you have gifts received,
Tell in whom you have believed;
Quickly go, let others know,
Blessings from the Gospel flow. [Refrain]

4 Not alone! A mighty friend
Shall be with you to the end,
Blessing you as you shall bless
Those who writhe in sin’s distress;
Go and teach, a Savior preach,
Speak in love, compel, beseech. [Refrain]
