Lyrics

I am a stranger here,
Within a foreign land;
My home is far away,
Upon a golden strand;
Ambassador to be
Of realms beyond the sea,
I’m here on business for my king.

Refrain

This is the message that I bring,
A message angels fain would sing:
Oh, be ye reconciled,
Thus saith my Lord and king,
Oh, be ye reconciled to God.

This is the King’s command:
That all men, everywhere,
Repent and turn away
From sin’s seductive snare;
That all who will obey,
With Him shall reign for aye,
And that’s my business for my king.

Refrain

My home is brighter far
Than Sharon’s rosy plain,
Eternal life and joy
Throughout its vast domain;
My sovereign bids me tell
Tow mortals there may dwell,
And that’s my business for my king.
