THE MISSIONARY MARSEILLAISE




Ye Christian men of every nation,
Hark, hark what cries salute your ears!
The heathen in their degradation
They call for help with sighs and tears,
They call for help with sighs and tears;
Shall souls immortal
languish bleeding?
Oppressed by Satanís slavish chains,
In superstitionís woes and pains,
While Christian hearts
are dead, unheeding?

Arise, O Church of God!
Awake for Jesusí sake!
March on, march on, all hearts aflame,
For Christ the world to take.



By thousands, hopeless,
they are falling,
And neíer have heard
their Saviorís Name;
For life and liberty theyíre calling,
But perish in their guilt and shame,
But perish in their guilt and shame;
Too long have Christians
heard their wailing,
Their death cries out of pagan night;
Their prayers in vain for Gospel light;
Oh, shall their cries be unavailing?

Arise, O Church of God!
Awake for Jesusí sake!
March on, march on, all hearts aflame,
For Christ the world to take.




Oh, ye who serve the King of glory,
In lands where heavenís
blessings glow,
Can ye withhold salvationís story,
From myriads sunk in heathen woe?
From myriads sunk in heathen woe?
Nay, by the blood
that makes men brothers,
The bannered cross must be unfurled;
The kingdom is for all the world,
And men redeemed must uplift others.

Arise, O Church of God!
Awake for Jesusí sake!
March on, march on, all hearts aflame,
For Christ the world to take.



Shall Christians hoard
their golden treasure?
And pile their stores
with miserís greed,
Or spend for fashion,
pride and pleasures,
While empires for the Gospel plead?
While empires for the Gospel plead?
Can men of soul, their God adoring,
For heavenís crowning glories hope?
While millions in
their blindness grope,
And die, the light of life imploring?

Arise, O Church of God!
Awake for Jesusí sake!
March on, march on, all hearts aflame,
For Christ the world to take.



See, heaven lends cooperation!
For conquests grand and manifold;
And calls the Church to consecration,
Of life and strength and precious gold;
Of life and strength and precious gold;
While with Godís power
the world is shaking,
Oíerturning systems, creeds and caste,
And working changes worldwide vast,
íTis time dead Christian souls
were waking.

Arise, O Church of God!
Awake for Jesusí sake!
March on, march on, all hearts aflame,
For Christ the world to take.
