Refrain:
Listen, listen, God is calling,
through the Word inviting,
offering forgiveness, comfort, and joy.
Listen, listen, God is calling,
through the Word inviting,
offering forgiveness, comfort, and joy.

1 Jesus gave his mandate:
share the good news
that he came to save us
and set us free. [Refrain]

2 Let none be forgotten
throughout the world.
In the triune name of God
go and baptize. [Refrain]

3 Help us to be faithful,
standing steadfast,
walking in your precepts,
led by your Word. [Refrain]

Kenyan:
Neno,
neno lake Mungu
lakuita wewe,
neno la wokovu, tena jema.
