Out of a camp which He has left,

Where man’s religiousness is deft,

Which does not feel itself bereft,

Go forth to Him.

Into an empty wilderness

Where Satan’s powers cannot oppress

The refugees God loves to bless

Go forth to Him.

Knowing the glory of the grace

Which caused the Saviour to abase

Himself to take the sinner’s place

Go forth to Him.

Not only knowing His strong arm

To save from hazard and alarm,

Enamoured by His worth and charm

Go forth to Him.

Gathered with those who own His claim

And thus are faithful to His name,

Despising the reproach and shame

Go forth to Him.
