Consecrate Anew Today
|Gospel of the kingdom we spread,
Let all peoples know God’s will;
Great wheel, by the Spirit we're led,
The goal of the age fulfill.
His voice calls, His love compels us;
How can we still hesitate?
To all lands follow Christ the Lamb,
God's hidden myst'ry relate.
|Consecrate anew today to follow Him always;
His plan realized is our hearts’ desire.
All our days, we’d watch and pray, till Morning Star arise;
Then evermore with Christ, we’ll reign with might!
|In love, and in spirit sustain
Each member insep’rably.
Hold fast to the Head and be blent;
Self surrender, trust the Body,
By His power, strengthened be;
Not one lost, all share victory;
Praying, the foe we defeat!
|Go forth! In one Body advance,
Proclaiming the Jubilee;
Flow forth life and truth to all lands;
Be one with the ministry.
Break through culture, language, races;
Transfer all men into Christ;
In each place, one accord embrace,
The one new man realize.
|Rise up! To God’s heart we respond,
Plunge into the flow today!
Give all! His delight's our reward;
With all our might, forward race!
His return in secret taste;
Pillars, Christ's testimony bear,
Shine as that City for aye!
