Hymn/Song Information

THE COMMISSION




Ere Christ ascended to his throne,
He issued forth this great commandó
Go preach my gospel to the world,
And spread my name through every land.


To men declare their sinful state,
The methods of my grace explain;
He that believes and is baptised,
Shall everlasting life obtain.


Dear Saviour, we thy will obey,
Not of constraint, but with delight;
Hither thy servants come to-day,
To honour thine appointed rite.


Descend again, celestial Dove,
On these dear followers of the Lord;
Exalted Head of all the church,
Thy promised aid to them afford.


Let faith assisted now by signs,
The mysteries of thy love explore;
And washed in thy redeeming blood,
Let them depart, and sin no more.
