The lyrics are copyright so cannot be reproduced here. But they are currently available on this website. A rough outline is:
1 Take the Word and go out to every land ...

Chorus:
With one voice we’ll pass the Word along;
with one voice bring justice to the world.
And with all the angels we’ll spread the goodness of God.
With all power and glory the Word of God shall reign.

2 Take the Word to our neighbourhoods and streets ...

3 Take the Word to the people in despair ...

4 Take the Word to the nations everywhere ...:

See more ...


KEEP IN CASE ORIGINAL IS REMOVED, BUT DO NOT DISPLAY
Take the Word and go out to every land: shine the light of Christ for all to see!
May the lives of those we touch sing praise to God above. Let us sing, we’ll sing:

Chorus:
With one voice we’ll pass the Word along; with one voice bring justice to the world.
And with all the angels we’ll spread the goodness of God.
With all power and glory the Word of God shall reign.

2 Take the Word to our neighborhoods and streets:
shine the light of Christ for all to see!
Make we all set out to live in peace and harmony. They will see and sing: (

3 Take the Word to the people in despair; shine the light of Christ for all to see!
May our actions and our deeds bring comfort to their needs. And they’ll know and sing: (

4 Take the Word to the nations everywhere; shine the light of Christ for all to see!
May the witness of our lives transform the world anew. And we’ll shine, we’ll shine:
