Far-off Fields?

Posted by Don Johnson on

We're concerned for the sinner in China
   And the heathen in Mandalay,
But say, do we care, have we offered a prayer
   For the lost one just over the way?

We say we would go with the Gospel
   To lighten dark Africa's shore—
Have we spoken a word in the Name of the Lord
   To people who live just next door?

The person who lives down the way,
   Who looks so forbidding and grim;
Do we have a call to witness at all
   Or speak of the Saviour to him?

We'd take the Gospel to Savages,
   We'd cross the stormy tide;
But will we tell out what the Gospel's about
   To the people who work by our side?

We'd tell of our wonderful Saviour
   And His love we have found so sweet
To far-off ones, but what about
   The folks we will meet on the street?
