For the Sake of His Name

This new song was the theme song at one mission conference we were in and then this morning it was the special music for the first day of a mission conference.  The words really spoke to my heart so I wanted to share it here.

Go to the world for the sake of His name;
To every nation His glory proclaim.
Pray that the Spirit wise
Will open darkened eyes,
Granting new life to display Jesus’ fame.

Love the unloved for the sake of His name;
Like Christ, befriend those whose heads hang in shame.
Jesus did not condemn,
But was condemned for them.
Trust gospel pow’r, for we once were the same.

Rescue the lost for the sake of His name;
As Christ commands, snatch them out of the flame.
Tell that when Jesus died
God’s wrath was satisfied.
Urge them to flee to the Lamb who was slain.

Look to the Throne for the sake of His name;
Think of the throng who will share in His reign.
Some for whose souls we pray
Will share our joy that day,
Joining our song for the sake of His name!

Refrain:
In Jesus’ power, preach Christ to the lost;
For Jesus’ glory, count all else but loss.
Gather from every place
Trophies of sov’reign grace.
Lest life be wasted, exalt Jesus’ cross.

One thought on “For the Sake of His Name

  1. Kim,
    Great song. Chris wrote this for a conference our church has every other year. Student Global Impact is the conference and For the Sake of His Name is the title of the book our pastors wrote regarding missions.

    Ihave only heard the song sung a few times but enjoy it too.

    HOpe you enjoy the final leg of furlough. Thinking of you along the way
    Carol
