The Whole Wide World For Jesus Once


The whole wide world for Jesus!
Once more, before we part,
Ring out the joyful watchword
From every grateful heart;
The whole wide world for Jesus!
Be this our battle cry;
The Crucified shall conquer,
And victory is nigh.

Refrain:
The whole wide world for Jesus!
This whole wide world
For Jesus Christ, our Lord!

The whole wide world for Jesus!
From out the Golden Gate
Thro’ all the South Sea Islands,
To China’s princely state;
From India’s vales and mountains,
Thro’ Persia’s land of bloom,
To storied Palestina,
And Afric’s desert gloom. [Refrain]

The whole wide world for Jesus!
Its hearts, and homes, and thrones;
Ring out again the watchword
In loud and joyous tones:
The whole wide world for Jesus!
With prayer the song we’ll wing,
And speed the prayer with labor,
Till earth shall crown Him King. [Refrain]
