A&O no. 391, "Send Us Now Across the Rolling Ocean"
(TTTO of 'Cwm Rhondda' aka 'Bread of Heaven').

Send us now across the rolling Ocean
Spread the Word in heathen lands
Hark ye all to Brutha's mighty notion
Put your soul into Om's hands

Tracts and leaflets, tracts and leaflets
To your shores we pamphlets bring
(we pamphlets bring)
To your shores we pamphlets bring

Be not weak when knocking on the portals
Get your foot inside the door;
Om needs souls to add into his totals
Preach the word to rich and poor

Argue gently, argue gently
With all those who would dispute
(who would dispute)
With all those who would dispute

When you tread upon the steps of houses
Oft those lain within will hide
Keep your faith and eke your holy trousers
And shout through the mailbox wide

Pubs and markets, pubs and markets
There will ye gather to sing
(gather to sing)
There will ye gather to sing
