Go, Messenger of Peace

Verse 1:
Go, messenger of peace and love,
To people plunged in shades of night;
Like angels sent from fields above,
Be thine to shine celestial light.

Verse 2:
On barren rock and desert isle,
Go bid the Rose of Sharon bloom,
Till arid wastes around thee smile,
And bear to heaven a sweet perfume.

Verse 3:
Oh, faint not in the day of toil,
When harvest waits the reaper’s hand!
Go, gather in the glorious spoil,
And joyous in His presence stand.

Balfour
