1 |Go preach my gospel, (saith the Lord,)
|Bid the whole earth my grace receive;
|He shall be sav'd that trusts my word,
|He shall be damn'd that won't believe.
2 |[I'll make your great commission known,
|And ye shall prove my gospel true
|By all the works that I have done,
|By all the wonders ye shall do.
3 |Go heal the sick, go raise the dead,
|Go cast out devils in my name;
|Nor let my prophets be afraid,
|Tho' Greeks reproach, and Jews blaspheme.]
4 |Teach all the nations my commands,
|I'm with you till the world shall end;
|All power is trusted to my hands,
|I can destroy, and I defend.|
He spake, and light shone round his head,
On a bright cloud to heaven he rode;
They to the farthest nations spread
The grace of their ascended God.
