Speed Away

Verse 1:
Speed away, speed away on your mission of light,
To the lands that are lying in darkness and night;
‘Tis the Master’s command; go ye forth in His name,
The wonderful Gospel of Jesus proclaim;
Take your lives in your hand, to the work while ’tis day,
Speed away, speed away, speed away.

Verse 2:
Speed away, speed away with the life-giving Word,
To the nations that know not the voice of the Lord;
Take the wings of the morning and fly o’er the wave,
In the strength of your Master the lost ones to save;
He is calling once more, not a moment’s delay,
Speed away, speed away, speed away.

Verse 3:
Speed away, speed away with the message of rest,
To the souls by the tempter in bondage oppress’d;
For the Saviour has purchas’d their ransom from sin,
And the banquet is ready, O gather them in;
To the rescue make haste, there’s no time for delay,
Speed away, speed away, speed away.

F.J. Crosby/I.B. Woodbury, arr.
