O you see the hungry faces
See the tortured look of eyes
Won't you send that glorious message
Of the cross that brings new life

See the thumb-worn, ragged pages
Carefully turned by loving hands
Bible verses tell the story
Of the cross that brought new life

See the believers clothed in darkness
While, outside, the heathen rage
On their knees, they pray for freedom
And for those who cause the pain

Master, O save us
The ones that you love
Master, O save us
The ones that you love

And now, Lord, behold their threatenings
Grant us boldness to defend
We will praise your name forever
Though tonight may be the end

O believers, hear this story
Won't you hear our brothers' call
Rise and go there, preach the Gospel
Before the Lord comes for us all

Master, O save us
The ones that you love
Master, O save us
The ones that you love

O you see the hungry faces
See the tortured look of eyes
Won't you send that glorious message
Of the cross that brought new life

Master, O save us
The ones that you love
Master, O save us
The ones that you love
