From Leilani Jensen: This is a beautiful song. It fits perfect for a farewell to a missionary who is leaving soon and thank you for sharing. I will perform this on Sunday. Thanks for your talents
5 stars.

Lyrics: Verse 1:
As Faithful missionaries,
Into the field we go.
Our mission is to rescue souls,
Our Savior to follow.

With courage, love, and faithfulness,
And in humility,
We go to preach the gospel,
Over sky and land, and sea.

Verse 2:
Our weapons are the scriptures,
Our shield the truth divine,
Our guide the Holy Spirit,
God’s power in us resides.

All peoples shall be taught to know,
Christ’s Church has been restored.
And through his living prophet
His voice can now be heard.

Verse 3:
In gratitude we worship thee,
Our Father most divine.
We ask thee now to guide our steps,
Illuminate our minds.

Oh let thy angels round us be,
And guard us from above.
In moments of adversity,
May we then feel thy love.

Verse 4:
Oh do not fear my little ones,
I am the Lord your God.
I shall be with you always,
And guide you from above.

Be patient in affliction,
And I the Lord will bless.
I grant my faithful servants,
Great joy and true success.

Verse 5:
For lo behold the field is white,
The harvest is at hand.
For many wait to hear your voice,
So share the gospel plan.

Thrust in your sickle with your might,
And reap while it is day.
Eternal life shall be thy joy,
With souls you help to save.

We have no greater joy,
Than to serve our God!
Nor any better bliss,
Than to serve our fellow man!

The duty of each member,
Is to be a missionary,
To teach God’s word, His light to share,
To stand for righteousness.
