Go Forth Ye Messenger Of Light


Go forth, ye messenger of light,
Led by the Holy Ghost;
Arrayed in garments clean and white,
And faithful at your post;
Oh, tell of Jesus’ love to thee,
That all who hear may know,
His precious blood can set them free,
And wash them white as snow.

Refrain:
Go forth and break the living bread
To every hungry soul;
And wake poor sinners from the dead,
Ere judgments on them roll.

Go forth, beloved, with “present truth,”
Glad tidings to proclaim-
From East to West, from North to South-
That Jesus truly came
To heal the sick and make them whole,
Lost sinners to redeem,
And give them peace within the soul-
Oh, blessed, blessed theme! [Refrain]

Go forth, go forth, ye mighty host,
With hearts made pure and true;
Stand fast for God at any cost,
And He will be to you
A present help in time of need,
A glorious conqu’ring pow’r,
He’ll keep your spirit free indeed,
Each day and every hour. [Refrain]

Go forth, go forth, unsheath the sword,
And wield it for the right;
Hew to the line, cut every cord
That binds in sectish night;
If you should opposition meet,
Turn not to right nor left,
Stand on the word in Him complete,
“The Rock of Ages,” cleft. [Refrain]
