He called you there to serve Him
On a far and distant shore;
To shine as lights in the darkness,
To tell then of our Lord.
We praise Him for your faithfulness
To go where He asked you to;
To proclaim His Word to the lost,
We thank our God for you.
Our prayers are ever with you
On that far and distant shore;
May God supply your every need
As you faithfully serve the Lord.

And how shall they preach unless they
are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful
are the feet of those who preach the gospel
of peace, who bring glad tidings of good
things!” (Romans 10:15)
