cry from heathendom

A Cry From Heathendom

(Fifth Edition)
"Preach the gospel in the Regions beyond you." 1 Cor. 10:16.

"Why didn't you tell us sooner?"
The words came sad and low;
O ye who knew the gospel truths,
Why didn't you let us know?
The Savior died for those who sin,
He died to save from those who sin,
He died to save from woe;
But we never heard the story,
Why didn't you let us know?

"You have had the gospel message,
You have known a Savior's love;
Your dear ones passed from Christian homes
To the blessed land above.
Why did you let our fathers die
And into the silence go?
With no thought of Christ to comfort,
Why didn't you let us know?

"We appeal to you, O Christians,
In lands beyond the sea!
Why didn't you tell us sooner,
Christ died to set man free?
Nineteen hundred years have passed
Since disciples were told to go
To the uttermost parts of the earth and teach;
Why didn't you let us know?

You say you are Christ's disciples;
That you try his work to do;
And yet his very last command
Is disobeyed by you.
This indeed a wonderful story so,
That he came and died to save us,
But you didn't let us know!

Souls, redeemed by Jesus,
Think what you Lord hath done.
He came to earth and suffered,
And died for man undone.
He expected you to tell it,
As on your way you go;
But you kept the message from us!
Why didn't you let us know?

Hear this pathetic cry of ours,
O dweller in Christian lands!
For heathendom stand before you,
With pleading outstretched hands;
You may not be able to come yourself,
But some in your stead can go.
Will you not send us teachers?
Will you not let us know?
