Go, Ye Messengers of Heaven

Men’s Choir

Reverently

1. Go, ye messengers of heaven,

Chosen by divine command;

Go and publish free salvation

To a dark, benighted land.

2. Go to island, vale, and mountain;

There fulfill the great command;

Gather out the sons of Jacob

To possess the promised land.

3. When your thousands all are gathered,

And their prayers for you ascend,

And the Lord has crowned with blessings

All the labors of your hand,

4. Then the song of joy and transport

Will from ev’ry land resound;

Then the nations long in darkness

By the Savior will be crowned.
