Ye Chosen Twelve, To You are Given

Hymns (1948, 1979), no. 211

1. Ye chosen Twelve, to you are given The keys of this last ministry, To every nation under heaven, To every nation under heaven, From land to land, from sea to sea.

2. First to the Gentile sound the news Throughout Columbia’s happy land, And then, before it reach the Jews, And then, before it reach the Jews, Prepare on Europe’s shores to stand.

3. Let Europe’s towns and cities hear The gospel tidings angels bring; Let Gentile nations far and near, Let Gentile nations far and near Prepare their hearts his praise to sing.

4. Both Africa’s and India’s plains Must hear the tidings as they roll Where darkness rules and sorrow reigns, Where darkness rules and sorrow reigns And tyranny has held control.

5. Give ear, ye isles in every zone, For every land must hear the sound! And tongues and nations long unknown, And tongues and nations long unknown Since they were lost shall soon be found.

6. And then again shall Asia hear, Where angels first the news revealed, Eternity the record bear, Eternity the record bear, And earth a joyful tribute yield.

7. The nations catch the pleasing sound, And Jew and Gentile swell the strain. Hosanna o’er the earth resound, Hosanna o’er the earth resound; Messiah then will come to reign.
