WE SERVE A GOD
(Song for the Martyrs)

 

We serve a God of love and peace

We serve a God of forgiveness

He is the Lord, the King of all kings

Yet He’s our gentle Shepherd


CHORUS:

Only one life, ‘twill soon be past.  It fades away…

Only what’s done for Christ will last.  It will remain…

 

We give to you our love and peace

We give to you our forgiveness

We serve the Lord, the King of all kings

He is our gentle Shepherd 

 

CHORUS:

Only one life, ‘twill soon be past.  It fades away…

Only what’s done for Christ will last.  It will remain…

 

Come serve our God of love and peace

Come serve our God of forgiveness

He is the Lord, the King of all kings

Yet He’s our gentle Shepherd


He is the Lord, the King of all Kings

Yet He’s our gentle Shepherd

BACKGROUND:

There has been much in the news lately regarding
the persecution and killing of Christians around the world. 
As I pondered the haunting images of Coptic believers,
lined up by ISIS on a beach to be slaughtered,
I asked myself "what message would Christians
give to those who were going to take their lives".
This song summarizes some of my thoughts.

Two lines from the chorus were written by C.T. Studd,
found in his famous poem "Only One Life, ‘twill Soon Be Past"
