Scripture: Romans 10:15b
1 From Greenland's icy mountains, From India's coral strands,
Where Egypt's sunny fountains Roll down their golden sands,
From Hudson's lordly river Across the fruited plain,
We cry to be delivered From sin and terror's chains.
2 Across the Andes mountains From Europe's azure shores,
We hear the cry of millions, Unknown, beseech the Lord,
"Come free us from our bondage To pleasures that destroy!
Come raise us from our sorrow And give us peace and joy."
3 Come Lord, and give us courage To share the news with all,
With all our friends and neighbors Who need to hear your call.
Salvation, oh, salvation! The joyful news proclaim
Till ev'ry land and nation Has heard Christ Jesus' name.
4 Send forth, O wind, his story And roll, wild oceans, roll
Till like a sea of glory It spreads from pole to pole
And over all creation The lamb for sinners slain,
Redeemer, Lord, Creator is crowned the king who reigns.
