Song: Jesus Said Go

Another Song of the Summit. This song borrows from the imagery of a 1st century wedding procession that moves through the countryside at night with torches burning and a celebration in motion. It’s not studio quality, but it captures the idea of the church being sent by the the Lord into the world to make disciples.

Lyrics

Jesus Said, Go!

Jesus said, Go! Travel by twos,

Walking together the path that I choose.

Then when you gather, your love will declare,

My kingdom come,

you will be one,

I will be there.

Jesus said, Go! Each do your part,

To build up the body, encourage each heart.

Each one a minister sent by the King,

A gift to bear,

a burden to share,

a new song to sing.

[Chorus]

A wedding procession, our people will be,

Bearing the torches of eternity,

A joyful river in darkness that flows

When Jesus says, go!

Jesus said, go! Do my commands.

Give hope to the hopeless and  lend them your hand.

Living and loving with hope for the lost.

Extend a hand,

whenever you can,

whatever the cost.

Jesus said, go! Into all the earth,

Making disciples, proclaiming new birth.

Wait for the Spirit to send you again.

Planting the church,

a place of new birth,

He’ll tell you when.

[Chorus]

A wedding procession, our people will be,

Bearing the torches of eternity,

A joyful river in darkness that flows

When Jesus says, go!
