O Zion Haste Hymn Lyrics


1 O Zion, haste, thy mission high fulfilling,
to tell to all the world that God is Light;
that He who made all nations is not willing
one soul should perish, lost in shades of night.

Publish glad tidings, tidings of peace,
tidings of Jesus, redemption, and release.

2 Behold how many thousands still are lying
bound in the dark-some prison-house of sin,
with none to tell them of the Savior’s dying,
or of the life He died for them to win. [Refrain]

3 Proclaim to every people, tongue, and nation
that God, in whom they live and move, is Love;
tell how He stooped to save His lost creation,
and died on earth that we might live above. [Refrain]

4 Give of thine own to bear the message glorious;
give of thy wealth to speed them on their way;
pour out thy soul for them in prayer victorious,
and all thou spendest Jesus will repay. [Refrain]
