Lyrics from A Collection of Sacred Hymns, for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, 1841

Hymn 128
8 7 8 7
1. Go, ye messengers of heaven,
Chosen by divine command;
Go and publish free salvation,
To a dark benighted land.

2. Go to island, sea, and mountain,
To fulfill the great command;
Gather our the sons of Jacob,
To possess the promised land.

3. When your thousands all are gathered,
And their prayers for you ascend,
And the Lord has crowned with blessings
All the labors of your hand,—

4. Then the song of joy and transport,
Will from every land resound,—
Then the heathen long in darkness,
By their Savior will be crowned.
