Ye Christian heralds, go proclaim
Salvation through Emmanuel's Name
To distant climes the tidings bear
And plant the Rose of Sharon there.
Ruler of worlds, display Thy power
Be this Thy Zion's favored hour
Bid the bright morning star arise
And point the nations to the skies.
Set up Thy throne where Satan reigns
On Afric shores, on India's plains
On wilds and continents unknown
And be the universe Thine own!
Speak and the world shall hear Thy voice
Speak and the deserts shall rejoice!
Scatter the shades of mortal night
Let worthless idols flee the light!
Trusting in Him, dear brethren, rear
The Gospel standard void of fear
Go seek with joy your destined shore
To view your native land no more.
He'll shield you with a wall of fire
With flaming zeal your hearts inspire
Bid raging winds their fury cease
And hush the tempests into peace.
And when our labors are all o'er
Then we shall meet to part no more
Meet with the blood bought throng to fall
And crown our Jesus, Lord of all!
The Gospel song, "Ye Christian Heralds Go Proclaim", was written by Bourne H. Draper in 1803.
