Ours is a fellowship in the gospel
|Ours is a fellowship in the gospel
Since we received the Lord;
We're for the furtherance of the gospel,
Spreading to all His Word.
For its defense and strong confirmation
We all partake of grace—
He who began this work will perfect it
Till we shall see His face.
|May all the things that come to us daily
Unto the gospel turn,
That all may see we're bound for the gospel
And of the Lord may learn.
May we be bold and fearless in spirit,
Speaking the Word of God,
Do it in love and do it in power,
While living in the Lord.
|Lord, we're expecting that we'll be given
Boldness with every breath.
Christ must be magnified in our body
Whether by life or death.
We hope in nothing to be ashamed,
For us to live is Christ—
He is the Person in all our living,
Our everything, our life.
|May all our lives be worthy the gospel
Whatever may betide,
All standing fast in oneness of spirit,
All striving side by side.
Let us proclaim the gospel in fullness
To satisfy the Lord:
Christ is the life, the church His expression,
Sound everywhere abroad.
