Representative Text

1 In the stead of the Lord we beseech you today,
Be ye reconciled, be ye reconciled;
And with purpose of heart from your sins turn away,
And be ye reconciled to God.

Refrain:
We are ambassadors for the King,
We are ambassadors for the King,
And we beseech of you,
Now we beseech of you,
Be ye reconciled to God;
And we beseech of you,
Now we beseech of you,
Be ye reconciled to God.

2 Naught remains to be done, all thy debt Jesus paid,
Be ye reconciled, be ye reconciled;
Your iniquities once upon him have been laid,
O be ye reconciled to God. [Refrain]

3 When the Lord has redeemed you go echo the call,
Be ye reconciled, be ye reconciled;
In the service of Jesus there’s room for us all,
Who have been reconciled to God. [Refrain]
