Who Will Go to America?

Who Will Go to America?


They left their homes in AmericaTo cross the ocean wide and blue.

They carried their cross, not caring the loss

So other souls could hear the truth.

But the light’s grown dim in America

And sin will be our nation’s doom.

We need more preaching in America

For Jesus is coming soon!


Chorus

Who will go to America?

Land of the red, white, and blue.

Who will go to America?

Tell me brother, why not you?






Our Saviour sends His children forth

To go to every land

To the islands of the uttermost

To find forgotten man.

But the most forgotten mission field

Is within our country’s shores

So who will go to America

She needs Jesus Christ the Lord.



Chorus
Who will go to America?
Land of the red, white, and blue.
Who will go to America?
Tell me brother, why not you?

cMy husband, Bret Groves, wrote this song in 1994. We are in the process of getting more sheet music for it. The Victorious Valley Girls Home recorded it years ago and the Lord has greatly used this song. You can respond to me and when I get the music for it I will let you know.
Thanks,
Karen Groves
