Hymn/Song Information

A cry as of pain again and again




A cry, as of pain, again and again,
Is borne o’er the deserts
and wide spreading main;
A cry from the lands
that in darkness are lying,
A cry from the hearts
that in sorrow are sighing;
It comes unto me;
it comes unto thee;
Oh what—oh what
shall the answer be?


Oh! hark to the call;
it comes unto all
Whom Jesus hath rescued
from sin’s deadly thrall;
“Come over and help us!
in bondage we languish”;
“Come over and help us!
we die in our anguish!”
It comes unto me;
it comes unto thee;
Oh what—oh what
shall the answer be?


It comes to the soul
that Christ hath made whole,
The heart that is longing
His Name to extol;
It comes with a chorus
of pitiful wailing;
It comes with a plea
which is strong and prevailing;
“For Christ’s sake” to me;
“For Christ’s sake” to thee;
Oh what—oh what
shall the answer be?


We come, Lord, to Thee,
Thy servants are we;
Inspire Thou the answer,
and true it shall be!
If here we should work,
or afar Thou should send us,
Oh grant that Thy mercy
may ever attend us,
That each one may be
a witness for Thee,
Till all the earth shall Thy glory see!
