SHARING the GOSPEL

New hymns and songs encouraging us to Share the Lord with others.

AWAKE, THOU THAT SLEEPEST !

Awake, thou that sleepest--  and rise from the night!
The day is upon thee,  and Christ is the Light.
He calls thee to labor-- shall His people sleep?
Thy slothful heart chasten-- awaken to weep!
       O weep for the lost, for Jesus' sake--
       Thy slothful heart chasten-- Awake, O awake!

Awake, thou that sleepest--  stir up thy desire!
To Christ be committed,  though salted with fire.
He seeks to baptize thee with suff'ring-- be bold!
And from thy refining come shining as gold.
       Come shining as gold, for Jesus' sake--
       He longs to refine thee-- Awake, O awake!

Awake, thou that sleepest-- how hard is thy heart!
How cold and how carnal-- how selfish thou art!
Oh think how He loves thee-- the good He has done--
But time flies away with the fast-falling sun!
       Come! Quicken thy heart, for Jesus' sake--
       O, look to the harvest--  Awake, O awake!

Awake, thou that sleepest-- The foe is at hand,
In craft and in cunning to conquer the land.
Shall forces of evil sweep on?  Like a flood,
Come lift up a standard-- an off'ring to God.
       An off'ring to God?  For Jesus'sake--
       Come lift up a standard-- Awake, O awake!

WHOM SHALL I SEND?

I call to the children of men, 
Whom shall I send?  Whom shall I send?   
Who will be willing to witness to men?
Whom shall I send?    "Send me!"
Who then is willing?  Whom shall I send?  
       "Here am I Lord-- send me!"

It's time for the harvest of men--
Whom shall I send?  Whom shall I send?
Storm clouds are dark'ning-- oh, bring their souls in--
Whom shall I send?    "Send me!"
Who then is willing?  Whom shall I send?  
       "Here am I Lord-- send me!"

So soon will the harvesting end--
Whom shall I send?  Whom shall I send?
Who will be willing, his labors to lend?
Whom shall I send?    "Send me!"
Who then is willing?  Whom shall I send?  
       "Here am I Lord-- send me!"

Subject: Who has the Faith... to invest in the rich rewards of the future... when God will liberally reward the ones who looked only to Him!

See Isaiah 6:8

WHO WILL TELL THE MILLIONS?

Who will tell the millions of the gift God gave them?
Who will share the one Christ, who alone can save them?
See them in their blindness,  Ignorant of His kindness,
Who will go to free their souls from sin?
Who will tell the millions of the Christ who died for them?

Who will tell the millions of the joy of Jesus,
Of His lovingkindness, and His full forgiveness,
Of His pure desire, Calling them up higher,
Dying to unite their souls to Him?
Who will tell the millions of the Savior's love for them?

Who will tell the millions?  Who will bear the message?
Who will brave the danger to convey the blessing?
Will the hours be failing, gates of hell prevailing?
Who will go with God, to bring them in?
Who will tell the millions of the Lord who died for them?

WHY LINGER HERE?

Why linger here at ease, my friend,
When Jesus calls you follow Him?
      Why linger here, why linger here?
How dare you rest, in dark repose,
And leave the battle to His foes!
      Why linger here-- why linger here?

      And will you count the conflict's cost,
      As by an anxious moment tossed?
      A little longer-- all is lost!
           Why linger here-- why linger here?

Arise, O Christian, to the task--
Fresh courage for the conflict ask--
      Why linger here-- why linger here?
Frail falt'ring flesh may beg you stay,
But Jesus bids you come away!
      Why linger here-- why linger here?

      Have you not known His love so great?
      Then will you-- can you-- dare you-- wait?
      How can you halt-- how hesitate?
            Why linger here-- why linger here?
