Matthew 28:19
"Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them
in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:"

          We've a story to tell to the nations,
          That shall turn their hearts to the right,
          A story of truth and mercy,
          A story of peace and light,
          A story of peace and light.

            Chorus
            For the darkness shall turn to dawning,
            And the dawning to noonday bright;
            And Christ's great kingdom shall come to earth,
            The kingdom of love and light.

          We've a song to be sung to the nations,
          That shall lift their hearts to the Lord,
          A song that shall conquer evil
          And shatter the spear and sword,
          And shatter the spear and sword.

            Chorus
            For the darkness shall turn to dawning,
            And the dawning to noonday bright;
            And Christ's great kingdom shall come to earth,
            The kingdom of love and light.

          We've a message to give to the nations,
          That the Lord who reigns up above
          Has sent us His Son to save us,
          And show us that God is love,
          And show us that God is love.

            Chorus
            For the darkness shall turn to dawning,
            And the dawning to noonday bright;
            And Christ's great kingdom shall come to earth,
            The kingdom of love and light.

          We've a Savior to show to the nations,
          Who the path of sorrow has trod,
          That all of the world's great peoples
          Might come to the truth of God,
          Might come to the truth of God.

            Chorus
            For the darkness shall turn to dawning,
            And the dawning to noonday bright;
            And Christ's great kingdom shall come to earth,
            The kingdom of love and light.
