Go Forth In Peace

Go forth in peace
Don’t fear the darkness,
Your life and ours
Are one in the Lord.
Though you don’t know this road
He walks before you
And waits ahead with open arms
To welcome you.
So lift your eyes
Set down your burden
Make your step light
And greet this day with joy.

When we are weary
And cannot face the morning
He carries us safely
Within His loving arms.
Wherever we go now
We’re never alone.
Wherever we go now
We’re only going home.
