THE KING’S BUSINESS




I am a stranger here,
within a foreign land;
My home is far away,
upon a golden strand;
Ambassador to be
of realms beyond the sea,
I’m here on business for my King.

This is the message that I bring,
A message angels fain would sing:
“Oh, be ye reconciled,”
Thus saith my Lord and King,
“Oh, be ye reconciled to God.”



This is the King’s command:
that all men, everywhere,
Repent and turn away
from sin’s seductive snare;
That all who will obey,
with Him shall reign for aye,
And that’s my business for my King.

This is the message that I bring,
A message angels fain would sing:
“Oh, be ye reconciled,”
Thus saith my Lord and King,
“Oh, be ye reconciled to God.”



My home is brighter far
than Sharon’s rosy plain,
Eternal life and joy throughout
its vast domain;
My Sovereign bids me tell
how mortals there may dwell,
And that’s my business for my King.

This is the message that I bring,
A message angels fain would sing:
“Oh, be ye reconciled,”
Thus saith my Lord and King,
“Oh, be ye reconciled to God.”
