DARKEST CHINA

“Missionary Gems” — A collection of short poems
Compiled from various sources — Gospel Trumpet Company
Blood-bought souls in darkest China,
On the far-off shores away;
With their outstretched hands they beckon,
Pleading, call, for me today.

Blood-bought souls in darkest China,
Under sin’s oppressive reign,
Ple-id for help; shall we still leave them
Bound with Satan’s galling chain?

Blood-bought souls in darkest China,
Born to poverty and shame,
Wait to hear the glorious freedom
We have found in Jesus’ name.

Blood-bought souls in darkest China,
Bowed beneath the tyrant’s rod,
Long have waited for the freedom
Of the blessed church of God.

Blood-bought souls in darkest China
Bid me hasten there today;
Longer here I can not tarry,
I must to that shore away.

Now they famish, starve and die;
To their rescue let me fly.
Jesus calls, I must obey,
To dark China now away.
