Hymn/Song Information

ORDINATION AND DEPARTURE OF MISSIONARIES




Ye Messengers of Christ
His sovereign voice obey;
Arise and follow where He leads,
And peace attend your way.


The Master whom you serve
Will needful strength bestow;
Depending on His promised aid,
With sacred courage go.


Mountains shall sink to plains,
And hell in vain oppose;
The cause is God's, and must prevail
In spite of all His foes.


Go, spread a Saviour's fame
And tell His matchless grace.
To the most guilty and depraved
Of Adam's num'rous race.


We wish you, in His name,
The most divine success;
Assured that He who sends you forth
Will your endeavours bless.


“When you from us depart,
To cross the boist'rous main;
We then will bear you on our hearts,
And hope to meet again.”


---Alternative verses---


Go, spread the Saviours s name,
Go, tell his matchless grace;
Proclaim salvation, full and free,
To Adam’s guilty race.
