Ye messengers of Christ,
His sov’reign voice obey;
Arise and follow where He leads,
And peace attend your way.

The Master Whom ye serve,
Will needful strength bestow;
Depending on His promised aid,
With sacred courage go.

Mountains shall sink to plains,
And hell in vain oppose;
The cause is God’s and must prevail,
In spite of all His foes.

Go, spread a Savior’s Name,
And tell His matchless grace,
To the most guilty and depraved
Of Adam’s numerous race.
