1. Go to the world for the sake of His name; To every nation His glory proclaim. Pray that the Spirit wise will open darkened eyes, Granting new life to display Jesus’ fame.
Chorus: In Jesus’ power, preach Christ to the lost; For Jesus’ glory, count all else but loss. Gather from every place trophies of sov’reign grace. Lest life be wasted, exalt Jesus’ cross.
2. Love the unloved for the sake of His name; Like Christ, befriend those whose heads hang in shame. Jesus did not condemn, but was condemned for them. Trust gospel pow’r, for we once were the same.
3. Rescue the lost for the sake of His name; As Christ commands, snatch them out of the flame. Tell that when Jesus died God’s wrath was satisfied. Urge them to flee to the Lamb who was slain.
4. Look to the Throne for the sake of His name; Think of the throng who will share in His reign. Some for whose souls we pray will share our joy that day, Joining our song for the sake of His name!
