The way of God they have not known,
They bow to idols of wood and stone.
They walk in darkness with great delight,
They seek the road to keen despair;
Thousands are travelling without the light,
Thousands have made their journey there.
It was for them that Jesus died,
But His name they have not known;
The Shepherd here has given the 'larm,
But unto them he has not gone.
The voice of God is calling now,
For soldiers strong and bold;
To carry the gospel to them there,
That Jesus' name there may be told.
Oh, that we could hear some one say,
" Lord here am I, send me !
I'll take the gospel and carry it there,
That they may know salvation's free."
If you cannot go, you can give your means,
To help to send the gospel there;
That the heathen may know the name of God,
And for judgment day make some prepare.
If you cannot give the rich man's sum,
You can give a penny or a shilling;
If you cannot pay the preacher's full fare,
You can show to the Lord that you're willing.
