Willing Witnesses


Tune: Abridge

('Be thou my guardian and my guide')


Water of life, river now flow

From us, that others know

The Spirit's touch through word and deed

And to your message heed


Message of salvation to all

Who on the Lord's name call

Give us courage, boldness that we

Not as the blocked streams be


Not stagnant, stale, but refreshing

Something of God's life bring

To each we meet, be large, small ways

Throughout our pilgrim days


The gospel preached, teaching, healing

Your name glorifying

As you Christ did, so may we be

Sharers of you freely


That deaf shall hear and dumb shall speak

Grace to the humble, meek

That sick be healed, e'en dead to rise

True gospel spread, no lies

    orchidee, your last line struck hard "True gospel spread, no lies" This many can take many ways, but for me it means that by their fruits ye shall know them.
