Into the world with a mission,
Kept by His bountiful care,
God the kind Father has sent us,
Tidings of Jesus to bear.
Help us to know Thee, dear Savior,
Simple and pure as Thou art;
Then in the spirit of meekness
May we Thy love-light impart.
Happy of heart is the Christian,
Cheered by a presence divine;
Jesus beside him is walking,
Giving him power to shine.
Gloomy and dark are the shadows,
Where sin and sorrow abound;
Jesus would have His disciples
Spreading His sunshine around.
This, then, shall be our endeavor,
Loyal disciples to be;
Lighting the darkness for Jesus,
Shining, dear Savior, for Thee.
