Marching Messengers

"Thou hast given a banner to them that fear Thee, that it may be displayed because of the truth… Wilt not Thou, O God… go out with our armies?" (Psalm 60:4,10).  "As the cold of snow in the time of harvest, so is a faithful messenger…  As cold waters to a thirsty soul, so is good news from a far country" (Proverbs 25:13,25).  "Be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you… Christ also hath once suffered for sins… that He might bring us to God" (1 Peter 3:15,18). 

We have a banner to display,
While marching with the Spirit's sword,
Because the truth that we convey
Exalts our resurrected Lord. 

As messengers of Christ our King,
The truth we preach is critical: 
It is the good news that we bring
As waters to the thirsty soul. 

We're called to always be prepared
To answer those who ask the reason
That validates our hope declared
In every place and every season. 

O Lord, as messengers You send,
Like armies marching in formation,
We take the Gospel You extend
To show the way of Your salvation.
