The Son of God has bled and died,
In grief and pain was crucified,

The Son of God has bled and died,
In grief and pain was crucified,
A full salvation to provide,
    For every creature.

The messengers that first he sent,
Went forth to spend and to be spent:
Through tears, and blood, and fire they went,
    To every creature.

A host has followed in their train,
Through hardship, poverty, and pain,
To preach the Lamb for sinners slain,
    To every creature.

And can we dwell in careless ease?
And can we live ourselves to please?
Nay—rise and follow after these,
    To every creature.

Go forth and preach the Savior's name,
And spread abroad his healing fame:
Redeeming love and grace proclaim,
    To every creature.
