SOUND, sound the news abroad,
Bear you the word of God
Through the wide world;
Tell what the Lord has done,
Tell how the day is won,
Tell from his lofty throne
Satan is hurled.

Far over sea and land,
'Tis Jesus' own command,
Bear you his name:
Bear it to every shore-
Regions unknown explore;
Enter at every door-
Silence is shame,

Speed on the wings of love,
Jesus who reigns bove
Bids us to fly:
They who his message bear
Should neither doubt nor fear;
He will their friend appear,
He will be nigh.

When on the mighty deep
He will their spirits keep,
Stayed on his word;
When in a foreign land,
No other friend at hand
Jesus will by them stand-
Jesus their Lord

You who forsaking all
At your loved Master's call
Comforts resign,

Soon will your work be done,
Soon will the prize be won;
Brighter than yonder sun
Then shall you shine.
