Jesus Said, Go!

This song borrows the imagery of the Jewish wedding procession making its way through the night from the bride’s home to the lands of the bridegroom’s father where the bridegroom has prepared a home for his bride.

Jesus Said, Go!

Jesus said, Go! Travel by twos,
Walking together the path that I choose.
Then when you gather, your love will declare,
My kingdom come,
you will be one,
I will be there.

Jesus said, Go! Each do your part,
To build up the body, encourage each heart.
Each one a minister sent by the King,
A gift to bear,
a burden to share,
a new song to sing.

[Chorus]
A wedding procession, our people will be,
Bearing the torches of eternity,
A joyful river in darkness that flows
When Jesus says, go!

Jesus said, go! Do my commands.
Give hope to the hopeless and lend them your hand.
Living and loving with hope for the lost.
Extend a hand,
whenever you can,
whatever the cost.

[Chorus]
A wedding procession, our people will be,
Bearing the torches of eternity,
A joyful river in darkness that flows
When Jesus says, go!

Jesus said, go! Into all the earth,
Making disciples, proclaiming new birth.
Wait for the Spirit to send you again.
Planting the church,
a place of new birth,
He’ll tell you when.

[Chorus]
A wedding procession, our people will be,
Bearing the torches of eternity,
A joyful river in darkness that flows
When Jesus says, go!
