Hymn/Song Information

Twas the commission of our Lord Go teach




’Twas the commission of our Lord,
“Go teach the nations, and baptize:”
The nations have received the word
Since He ascended to the skies.


He sits upon th’eternal hills,
With grace and pardon in His hands;
And sends His cov’nant with the seals,
To bless the distant darkened lands.


“Repent, and be baptized,” He saith,
“For the remission of your sins:”
And thus our sense assists our faith,
And shows us what His Gospel means.


Our souls He washes in His blood,
As water makes the body clean;
And the good Spirit from our God
Descends like purifying rain.


Thus we engage ourselves to Thee,
And seal our cov’nant with the Lord;
O may the great eternal Three
In Heav’n our solemn vows record!


---Alternative verses---


He sits upon th’eternal hills,
With grace and pardon in His hands;
And sends His cov’nant with the seals,
To bless the the distant British lands


"Reform and be immers'd," he saith,
"For the remission of your sins,"
And thus our sense assists our faith,
And shows us what the gospel means.
