Words by Don Besig and Nancy Price
Go now in Peace, Never be afraid.
God will go with you each hour of every day.
Go now in Faith, steadfast, strong and true.
Know He will guide you in all you do.
Go now in love, and show you believe.
Reach out to others so all the world can see.
God will be there, watching from above.
Go now in Peace, in faith, and in love.
