Hymn: "Facing a Task Unfinished"

    Original Words by Frank Houghton, Music by Samuel Wesley. New Words and Music by Keith and Kristyn Getty, Ed Cash and Fionan De Barra

    Facing a task unfinished
    That drives us to our knees
    A need that, undiminished
    Rebukes our slothful ease
    We, who rejoice to know Thee
    Renew before Thy throne
    The solemn pledge we owe Thee
    To go and make Thee known

    Where other lords beside Thee
    Hold their unhindered sway
    Where forces that defied Thee
    Defy Thee still today
    With none to heed their crying
    For life, and love, and light
    Unnumbered souls are dying
    And pass into the night

    Chorus
    We go to all the world
    With kingdom hope unfurled
    No other name has power to save
    But Jesus Christ The Lord

    We bear the torch that flaming
    Fell from the hands of those
    Who gave their lives proclaiming
    That Jesus died and rose
    Ours is the same commission
    The same glad message ours
    Fired by the same ambition
    To Thee we yield our powers

    Chorus

    O Father who sustained them
    O Spirit who inspired
    Saviour, whose love constrained them
    To toil with zeal untired
    From cowardice defend us
    From lethargy awake!
    Forth on Thine errands send us
    To labour for Thy sake

    Chorus

    We go to all the world
    His kingdom hope unfurled
    No other name has power to save
    But Jesus Christ The Lord”
