Give us a watchword for the hour,
A trilling word, a word of power;
A battle cry, a flaming breath,
A call to conquest or to death;
A word to rouse the church from rest,
To heed the Master's high behest.
The call is given, ye hosts arise,
The watchword is EVANGELIZE!!
To fallen men, a dying race,
Make known the gift of gospel grace.
The world that now in darkness lies,
O Church of Christ EVANGELIZE!!
Matt. 28:18-20, Acts1:8, Ezek. 33:7-8; Matt. 5:13-16
