Preach, O Preach the Word!
By Matthew R. Perry
Written November 1, 2005
Based on 2 Timothy 4:2-5

This is a charge we are to keep!
To tell it loud before His sheep
And rouse the lost out of their sleep!
O preach, O preach the Word of God!

Be ready, shepherds, to reprove
Exhort the church so it may move
To spread the truth, embraced with love!
O Preach, O preach the Word of God.

The world moves out with itching ears
That long to hear what they hold dear
And mute the Word that’s all too clear!
O preach, O preach the Word of God!

With sober minds and patient hearts
We persevere as from the start
"Fulfill your calling — do your part!"
O preach, O preach the Word of God!

L.M.
