Representative Text

1 It may be on the rugged plain
Where lurks the treacherous foe,
Or out across the rolling sea
My King will bid me go.

My business here is very clear
In palace or in home so drear.
I’m work to do, I’ve news to bring;
I’m here on business for my King.

2 It may be in the valley low
Or on the mountain peak,
But ev’ry where that I may go,
For Jesus I will speak. [Refrain]

3 So anywhere my lot is cast
He may depend on me,
For I’m commissioned by His word,
And faithful I will be. [Refrain]
