VERSE 1:
Facing a task unfinished
That drives us to our knees
A need that, undiminished
Rebukes our slothful ease
We, who rejoice to know Thee
Renew before Thy throne
The solemn pledge we owe Thee
To go and make Thee known

CHORUS:
We go to all the world
With kingdom hope unfurled
No other name has pow'r to save
But Jesus Christ The Lord

VERSE 2:
Where other lords beside Thee
Hold their unhindered sway
Where forces that defied Thee
Defy Thee still today
With none to heed their crying
For life, and love, and light
Unnumbered souls are dying
And pass into the night

CHORUS:
We go to all the world
With kingdom hope unfurled
No other name has pow'r to save
But Jesus Christ The Lord

VERSE 3:
We bear the torch that flaming
Fell from the hands of those
Who gave their lives proclaiming
That Jesus died and rose
Ours is the same commission
The same glad message ours
Fired by the same ambition
To Thee we yield our pow'rs

CHORUS:
We go to all the world
With kingdom hope unfurled
No other name has pow'r to save
But Jesus Christ The Lord

VERSE 4:
O Father who sustained them
O Spirit who inspired
Savior, whose love constrained them
To toil with zeal untired
From cowardice defend us
From lethargy awake!
Forth on Thine errands send us
To labor for Thy sake

CHORUS:
We go to all the world
With kingdom hope unfurled
No other name has pow'r to save
But Jesus Christ The Lord
