​The Mission

This song is by Steve Green and appears on the album The Mission (1989).

There's a call going out
Across the land in every nation
A call to those who swear allegiance
To the cross of Christ
A call to true humility
To live our lives responsibly
To deepen our devotion
To the cross at any price

Let us then be sober
Moving only in the Spirit
As aliens and strangers
In a hostile foreign land
The message we're proclaiming
Is repentance and forgiveness
The offer of salvation
To the dying race of man

To love the Lord, our God
Is the heartbeat of our mission
The spring from which our service
Overflows across the street
Or around the world
The mission's still the same
Proclaim and live the Truth
In Jesus' name!

As a candle is consumed
By the passion of the flame
Spilling light unsparingly
Throughout a darkened room
Let us burn to know Him deeper
Then our service flaming bright
Will radiate his passions
And blaze with holy light!

To love the Lord, our God
Is the heartbeat of our mission
The spring from which our service
Overflows across the street
Or around the world
The mission's still the same
Proclaim and live the Truth
In Jesus' name!

To love the Lord, our God
Is the heartbeat of our mission
The spring from which our service
Overflows across the street
Or around the world
The mission's still the same
Proclaim and live the Truth
In Jesus' name!

To love the Lord, our God
Is the heartbeat of our mission
The spring from which our service
Overflows across the street
Or around the world
The mission's still the same
Proclaim and live the Truth
In Jesus' name

To love the Lord, our God
Is the heartbeat of our mission
To love the Lord, our God
Is the heartbeat of our mission
