baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son
Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, 
baptizing them in the name of the Holy Spirit (Chorus)

Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, 
teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.
And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” (Chorus)

and he will make straight your paths.  (repeat)

It will be healing to your flesh and refreshment to your bones

 Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
and do not lean on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will make straight your paths.
