Looking for the words to this hymn. It is a missionary themed hymn.

Don't know if I posted correctly. The words are "On the darkest side of the road where the sick and wounded lie."

These are all the lyrics I found so far

On the darkest side of the road, where the sick and wounded lie;
They're calling for help and for mercy Oh how can you pass them bye?
The Savior asks your life In the service of want and pain,
And everything more that thou spendest He'll repay when He comes again.

Very interesting -- my husband heard this chorus in Panama at special meetings years and yeas ago & also asked me to find the lyrics.

I learned this song as a boy in the 1950's. My parents were both clergy inthe Holiness tradition, and yes, it would be sung in a "missionary service", where offerings were being taken and pledges taken for service in what we now call the third world. I've not seen the music,. it would be best sung i n F major, beginning on middle C, used a lot of major sixths.

On the darkest side of the road,
Where the sick and wounded lie,
They’re calling for help and for mercy,
Oh how can you pass them by?
The savior asks your love,
In the service of want and pain
And anything more that thou spenders,
He’ll pay when He comes again.
