Go Bear The Cross To Every Land


Go, bear the cross to ev’ry land where foot of man hath trod,
Send out where thickest darkness lies the blessed light of God;
Lift up the standard of the Lord on hill and mountain height,
Till captive bound with error’s chain shall hail the glorious sight.

Refrain:
Go forth! Welcome the wide world in!
Go forth! Conquer the hosts of sin!
Go forth! Knowing the Lord will win
A nation in a day!
A nation in a day!
A nation in a day!
Go forth! Knowing the Lord will win
A nation in a day!

O’er land and sea, with faithful hand, fling out his banner wide,
That those who touch its shining folds may in his love abide;
While shouts of gladness fill the air, march on the world to win;
Stay not, for round about you stand a mighty host of sin. [Refrain]

Go, bear the cross with joyful song, the Lord is on his way,
And this shall be his heritage, a kingdom in a day;
Oh, haste with loyal hearts and true until the strife shall cease,
When all shall know and love our God and hail his reign of peace. [Refrain]
