This Good News

I was trying to memorise Matthew 24:14, because it's such an important verse! I started singing it round and round as a little ditty to help me remember it. After a while I thought to myself, 'This tune is quite good!' So I had a go at writing some verses, and with a bit of help from some friends, shaped and improved the melody. I hope that as we sing this song we will grow in faith and determination to take the Gospel to the ends of the earth, and see the Lord's return.

Lyrics

This good news of the kingdom will go
Into all of the earth, then the end will come
This good news of the kingdom will go
Into all of the earth, then the end will come

Keep sowing the truth of his word
Keep calling the lost to return
Keep raising your voice in this land
For the kingdom of our Lord is at hand

Be faithful as you serve in his house
For no one knows the day or the hour
He’s coming for those who eagerly wait
Lord we’re longing for that glorious day

Keep working with rest in your heart
Keep using the gifts he imparts
Keep fighting ’til the battle is won
Keep praying for his kingdom to come
