You are a mission field
Courted and maintained by God
He is your father, brother, leader, guide
His love poured out for you, You belong to Him

Our glory is in our service
Serving others He has called
As though our life depended on it
Without each other we will fall

Jesus is our Savior
Faith in Him is better than gold
It’s a real position of confidence
We are His to have and to hold

All of our service is an activity of love
The need of a world gone mad with sin
It is in dire need of our love
We are coworkers with God

Live with those around you
With an awareness of your Call
Christ in you your hope of glory
Is that power that will enable you to fulfill your call

Jesus is our best friend
He never sets us aside
Always willing to listen
Calling us to sit by His side

Our growth in Christ
Comes with sacrifice
Setting aside the world
And its selfish advice

Pray for me and I’ll pray for you
Jesus will see us through
His wisdom will carry us in times of pain
You are a mission field in Jesus name
