David Ogden Go Forth and Tell!

Anthems, RSCM Publications
Keyboard [organ/piano]
Moderately Easy
Suggested Uses(s)

SATB and organ.

Notes: A strong song of Mission to wake up the church and send them on their way proclaiming the Good News. Make sure your choir sings this anthem with the energy and enthusiasm of an evangelist, not the stagnancy of a committee. Consonants at the start and end of words need to be heard particularly in the word ‘go’. Before rehearsing it is worth drawing the attention of the lower parts to the underlay in verse 2.

Go forth and tell!
O Church of God, awake!
God's saving news to all the nations take.
Proclaim Christ Jesus, Saviour Lord and King,
That all the world his worthy praise may sing.

Go forth and tell!
God's love embraces all;
He will in grace respond to all who call.
How shall they call if they have never heard
The gracious invitation of his word?

Go forth and tell
Where still the darkness lies,
In wealth or want, the sinner surely dies:
Give us, O Lord, concern for heart and mind,
A love like yours which cares for humankind.

Go forth and tell!
The doors are open wide:
Share God's good gifts -- let no one be denied.
Live out your life as Christ your Lord shall choose;
Your ransomed powers for his sole glory use.

Go forth and tell!
O Church of God arise!
Go in the strength which Christ your Lord supplies.
Go till all the nations his great name adore
And serve him, Lord and King, for ever more.
