Missions of mercy, Missions of love,
Missions to tell of the Saviour above ;
Missions to people captive in sin,
Missions of rescue to those bound within.
Missions of mercy, Missions of peace,
Missions of tenderness we must increase;
Missions to lost ones needing to know
Of free salvation from sin and its woe.
Missions of mercy, Missions of grace,
Missions to witness with words, deeds, and face;
Missions to spare them from sinful loss,
Missions to tell them of Christ and His cross,
Missions of mercy, Missions of joy,
Words of compassion our lips must employ;
Missions is people, people who tell
Others of Jesus, of Heaven, and Hell.
