A sending song based on Hebrews 4:12-15

lyrics

The Word of God is life and power
The Word of God will give us freedom to change
The Word of God is sharp as iron
The Word of God will never leave us the same
as when we came

As we go to the world
may we live as new creations
As we go to the world
may we be his love in action
He understands our weakness
and he will be our strength

Suggested Use

  • This upbeat sending song moves us from Word to world! It would be a great ending to any service, regardless of liturgical season.
  • The simplicity of the melody makes this a great song to use intergenerationally. Teach it to your youth/kids as a way to memorize Scripture and let them help teach it to the congregation. Include some simple motions for the refrain.
