“Missionary Gems” — A collection of short poems
Compiled from various sources — Gospel Trumpet Company
“Go ye” was the last command
The disciples heard
As their Christ, the risen Lord,
Spoke his final word.

Just before he left for heaven
In that chariot fair,
He expressed his last desire,
“Go ye ev’rywhere.”

Let the gospel sound be known
Throughout all the world,
Let the truth with mighty force
Have her folds unfurled.

For my pow’r will elevate
Man, though low and vain,
To the heights of holiness,
Cleansed from ev’ry stain.”

So the tidings come to us, —
“Let the heathen know
Of the conquering pow’r of God
Sin to overthrow.”

“Go ye unto all the tribes,
Into ev’ry sphere”;
He expressed his last desire —
“Go ye ev’rywhere.”
