O CHRISTIAN HASTE




O Zion, haste,
thy mission high fulfilling,
To tell to all the world
that God is light,
That He who made
all nations is not willing
One soul should perish,
lost in shades of night.

Publish glad tidings,
tidings of peace;
Tidings of Jesus,
redemption and release.



Behold how many thousands
still are lying
Bound in the darksome
prison house of sin,
With none to tell them
of the Saviorís dying,
Or of the life He died
for them to win.

Publish glad tidings,
tidings of peace;
Tidings of Jesus,
redemption and release.



Proclaim to every people,
tongue, and nation
That God, in Whom they live
and move, is love;
Tell how He stooped to save
His lost creation,
And died on earth
that we might live above.

Publish glad tidings,
tidings of peace;
Tidings of Jesus,
redemption and release.



Send heralds forth to bear
the message glorious;
give of thy wealth to speed them
on their way;
pour out thy soul for them
in prayer victorious
till God shall bring
his kingdomís joyful day.

Publish glad tidings,
tidings of peace;
Tidings of Jesus,
redemption and release.



íTis thine to save
from peril of perdition
The souls for whom the Lord
His life laid down:
Beware lest, slothful
to fulfill thy mission,
Thou lose one jewel that
should deck His crown.

Publish glad tidings,
tidings of peace;
Tidings of Jesus,
redemption and release.



Give of thy sons to bear the
message glorious;
Give of thy wealth to speed
them on their way;
Pour out thy soul for them
in prayer victorious;
O Zion, haste to bring
the brighter day.

Publish glad tidings,
tidings of peace;
Tidings of Jesus,
redemption and release.



He comes again! O Zion,
ere thou meet Him,
Make known to every heart
His saving grace:
Let none whom he
Hath ransomed fail to greet Him,
Through thy neglect,
unfit to see His face.

Publish glad tidings,
tidings of peace;
Tidings of Jesus,
redemption and release.
