A God-raised and Spirit-filled Army
A God-raised and Spirit-filled Army is a new song specifically written by Commissioners Robert Street and Dick Krommenhoek to support the International Vision launched by General Linda Bond.
A God-raised and Spirit-filled Army,
Convinced of its calling today
To enter the world of the hurting
With Jesus, the Life, Truth and Way;
We ask that your Spirit’s infilling
Will guide us, empower and inspire;
O Lord, give your presence to make us
One Army, your Army, on fire.
One Army, one mission, one message,
One Saviour and Lord of all;
An Army with purpose and passion,
We are united to answer his call.
An Army following Christ together,
Reaching the lost with his love;
One Army, one mission, one message
For the world.
Responding to your great commission,
Our charge from your hand we will take;
The young and the old as our mission,
Disciples for Jesus we’ll make;
Bring freedom and hope through our living
Serve others with strength from above;
O Lord, give us your holy vision,
One mission, your mission, of love.
The transforming message of Jesus,
With power to make lives anew,
Speaks healing to lost, broken people
And proves all his promises true.
We ask that in sharing your message
We also its fullness embrace;
O Lord, may your Word live within us,
One message, your message, of grace.
