When the runners came from Bethlehem All breathless with good news
They were passing a baton forward through time

The commission, from God?s lips to our ears Carried by His Saints, two thousand years Connects us all to the same lifeline 
As I fix my eyes ahead I can feel the Spirit?s breath 
And I can hear the mission bell Ringing out loud and clear It's the revolution Jesus started And it's here
 Echoing across the world From the shores of Galilee I can hear the mission bell call
For you and me

I wanna run with fire
It?s my heart?s desire Lifting Your love higher 
In the history of our faith?s arrivals Great awakenings, Welsh revivals Saints and martyrs, summoned by a new birth 
Patrick?s save of the Irish nation William Carey?s expectation Lambs and lions called to the ends of the earth  Gotta put my hands to the plow
Not looking back, not now

I can hear the mission bell Ringing out loud and clear It's the revolution Jesus started And it's here
 Echoing across the world From the shores of Galilee I can hear the mission bell call
For you and me

I wanna run with fire
It?s my heart?s desire Lifting Your love higher It?s my heart?s desire 
I can hear the mission bell Ringing out loud and clear It's the revolution Jesus started And it's here
 Echoing across the world From the shores of Galilee I can hear the mission bell call
For you and me

I can hear the mission bell Ringing out loud and clear It's the revolution Jesus started And it's here

I wanna run with fire
It?s my heart?s desire Lifting Your love higher It?s my heart?s desire
