Great Commission Fulfilled

Lord sprinkle Your word across all the land
So hearts may be stirred as they hear Your command
May the wind and the waves each foot and each wing
Proclaim Jesus saves to each living thing
Then as the sound echoes from shore to shore
May each heedless soul no longer ignore
The shout from men’s voices, the wind and the waves
As each heart rejoices Jesus saves, Jesus saves

The man in the field thrusts his labors aside
The one at the wheel joins and matches his stride
As they jump to the roof-tops and shout cross the wave
Oh careless one stop, Jesus saves, Jesus saves
The beggar that lies in the filth on the street
Will slowly arise at the message so sweet
It calls to the weak as well as the brave
Come all ye who seek, Jesus saves, Jesus saves

They leap at the cry that is borne on the wind
Come all ye who sleep, all the deaf and the blind
Like lightning and thunder to the depths of the graves
Shout voices of wonder, Jesus saves, Jesus saves
And up from their slumber they join in the song
Like sands without number, triumphant the throng
Their shouts rise above the wind and the waves
Oh wonderful love, Jesus saves, Jesus saves

The Great Commission
…then Jesus came to them and said,
“All authority on heaven and on earth has been given to me,
Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations,
Baptizing them in the name of the Father,
And of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
And teaching them to obey everything
I have commanded you.
And surely I will be with you always,
To the very end of the age. Matt.28: 18-20
