lyrics

We have witnessed your great goodness, Lord.
We have heard what’s on your heart.
Now you’re sending us as salt and light, 
Father, for your glory we will go. 
Wherever you will lead us, we will go. 

You have shown no limit to your love,
by the scars your body bears. 
Now we’re called to lay our own life down.
Jesus in your mercy we will go.
Wherever you will lead us, we will go.

You have filled us with your living hope.
Let our faith and courage rise
as we share this call to follow you
Spirit, in your power we will go.
Wherever you will lead us, we will go.
