The Great Commission
Music by Roger Linder
Lyrics by Bethany Carlson and Roger Linder
Jesus
I leave my peace with you, friends
A peace the world can't give
Spread the news to earth's ends:
"Follow me, choose to live"
Share my spirit, share my word, tell all who I am
Baptize all who come to you believing in God's lamb.

Peter
But we are merely men
How can we go out again,
Ill-equipped to see this through?
Will we be all alone,
Traveling where we're unknown?
Who will guide us? Who?

Jesus
The Father, Son, and Spirit
Will fit you for the task
If you should find it lacking
You only need to ask
Your prayers will sound on Heaven's bell
Your songs forever sung
I am with you always, 'til the end of the age has rung

All authority is mine
Until the end of time
All shall follow in The Way
Make disciples for the cause
Free the people from the laws
My commandments to obey

I leave my peace with you, friends
A peace the world can't give
Spread the news to earth's ends:
"Follow me, choose to live"

Matthew 28:18-20
18 Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 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, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."
