Lyrics

Go forth to serve, as Je­sus went,
To minister to men;
A messenger from Hea­ven sent,
To do His work again.

Refrain

There’s a new day dawning,
There’s a new day dawning;
Then arise, O children of the light,
Arise and sing!
There’s a new day dawning,
There’s a new day dawning;
When the nations of the world
Shall worship Christ the King.

Be loyal to God’s holy Word,
Delivered to the saints;
Hold fast the truth that you have heard
Against the world’s complaints.

Refrain

Seek Christ, His will, His sacrifice,
His blessèd way to live;
Let self die out, Christ shall suffice,
To Him your spirit give.
