The Missionaries
Words and music by Jason Bellard

Chords // ( Am Em ) Spoken word
Blessed are the ones who for the sake of Christ, our Lord,
Suffer persecution in this dark, ungodly world
Surely theirs is the kingdom, this is true
Those who see that glory is not theirs but unto God it’s due
Let your light so shine, you men of God, through trial, toil and snare
Bless all they that curse you, all who mock, and scorn and stare
Hated you will be by all who once were friends
And you will be delivered, who endure until the end
Do not seek to save your life but to God’s Word be bound
For selfish right cannot compare to martyrs’ crown
