“For my sake and the gospel"
 - Mark 8:35

1.  FOR my sake and the Gospel's go

     And tell Redemption's story

     His heralds answer, Be it so,

     And Thine, Lord all the glory!

     They preach His Birth His Life 

     His Cross The love of His Atonement

     For whom they count the world but 

     loss His easter, His enthronement.

2.  Hark, hark, the trump of Jubilee 

     Proclaims to every nation 

     From pole to pole, by land and sea 

     Glad tidings of salvation

     As nearer draws the day of doom

     While still the battle rages

     The Heavenly Dayspring through the 

     gloom Breaks on the night of ages.

3.  Still on and on the anthems spread

     Of Hallelujah voices

     In concert with the holy Dead

     The warrior Church rejoices 

     Their snow‐white robes are washed

     in Blood Their golden harps are ringing

     Earth and the paradise of God 

     One triumph-song are singing.

4.  He comes, Whose Advent trumpet 

     sounds. The last of Times’s evangels 

     Emmanuel crown'd with many crowns 

     The Lord of Saints and Angels

     O Life, Light Love, the great l AM 

     Triune, who changest never,

     The Throne of God and of the lamb 

     ls Thine, and Thine for ever!  Amen
