The King's Business

I am a (C) stranger here, within a (G) foreign land;
My home is far away upon a (C) golden strand:
Ambassador to be of realms be(F)yond the sea,
I'm here on (C) business for (G) my (C) King.

This is the (G) message that I (C) bring.
A message (G) angels fain would (C) sing:
"Oh be ye reconciled," (C7)
Thus saith my (F) Lord and King.
"Oh be ye re(C)conciled (G) to (C) God."

This is the King's command: that all men ev'rywhere,
Repent and turn away from sin's seductive snare;
that all who will overy, with Him shall regn for aye,
And that's my business for my King.

My home is brighter far than Sharon's rosy plain,
Eternal life and joy thro'out its vast domain;
My Sovereign bids me tell how mortals there may dwell,
And that's my business for my King.
