Good morning, good morning to one and all
I’m here today to answer the call
To be a part of an extraordinary mission
This is the season to execute that vision.
Baptised and be sent that’s what they said
It just kept going round and round in my head even today.
What exactly could this really mean?
Wasn’t quite sure so I wanted someone to show me the scene.
I wanted an answer about the when, how and why?
But unfortunately for me it didn’t drop like manna from the sky
I had to look deep into that part of me
That people hardly ever really ever see
Baptise and be sent, that was the mission
The Holy Spirit would put me in the right position
His word was what I took to heart
And decided it was time to play my part.
Oil and water were placed on my head
Words from the Bible had also been said
That was just the symbolic part
Now the journey was about to start.
What you do on your daily routine
That’s the real test to see if your heart is clean
Being sent is not an easy task
What you do along the way earns you marks.
