Sent to Sow

"Light is sown for the righteous, and gladness for the upright in heart" (Psalm 97:11).  "Deceit is in the heart of them that imagine evil: but to the counselors of peace is joy" (Proverbs 12:20).  "Many nations shall be joined to the LORD... and shall be My people" (Zechariah 2:11).  "But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto Me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth" (Acts 1:8). 

Salvation through Christ is made known
With gladness for those who repent. 
The light of the Gospel is sown
By those whom our Savior has sent.

We're warring against the deceit
With truth in the Gospel of peace,
Where Satan has met his defeat,
And captives have found their release. 

The Gospel is sent to all nations  
Declaring the way of new birth  
And spreading the glad celebrations  
To all of the ends of the earth. 

O Lord, You have sent us to sow
In fields You told us are white. 
We've heard Your commission to go,
And in Your command we delight.
