1 Go ye to the land of the cedar and vine,
Where the angels came down from their heavenly train,
Where the garden was fillèd with presence divine,
And the Savior has trodden the valley and plain.
For a star hath arisen, to shine through the gloom,
And a life breaketh forth from the verge of the tomb.

Refrain:
For a star hath arisen, to shine through the gloom,
And a life breaketh forth from the verge of the tomb.

2 Go ye to the land of the jewel and gem,
Go ye to the stores of the richest of pearl;
The light of salvation is given to them,
There early the banner of glory unfurl;
Oh, go to the isles of the ocean’s wide breast,
And tell them of Jesus, and Heaven and rest. [Refrain]

3 Go ye to the land of the olive, and teach
Of a peace which the world is not able to give;
To the flowery land, where the message shall reach
The millions that wait in the Savior to live;
Go ye to the land of ruby and gold,
And bid them the crown of redemption behold. [Refrain]

4 Go ye to the land where the Ethiop roams,
And stretches his long fettered hand unto God;
Oh! tell them of Heaven, and point to the homes
Where never the foot of oppressions hath trod;
And the desert shall bloom, and the barren shall sing,
And the wilderness forth into beauty shall spring. [Refrain]
