This is a poem written for the contest which is quickly becoming a song; it's kind of a syncopeted, jazzy sound; lots of fun for kids to sing. I am the Celebration City Music Leader (our children's worship porgram), and write quite a bit of music for our program. Please read with the understanding that this is written for 5-year-olds to 4th graders. Thanks!

I am a missionary, too!
I told my teacher all about you.
I told her that you love her and
You died to set her free,
And that makes me a missionary!

Go and tell,
Everyone
About the love of
The Holy One!
Jesus said, “Go!”
So the whole world would know
He is the key to heaven!

I was a missionary today
When my friends and I went out to play!
One of them laughed, but one believed,
And that makes me a missionary!

God and tell
Everyone
About the love of the
Holy One
Jesus said, “Go!”
So the whole world would know
He is the key to heaven!

You don’t have to walk a foreign land
To tell people Jesus walked this land
Son of God,
come to Earth
To give those who choose him a spiritual birth

Go and tell
Everyone
About the love of the
Holy One!
Jesus said, “Go!”
So the whole world would know
He is the key to heaven!

I could see my kid getting into singing this. I'm not sure I agree with your definition of a missionary. Sounds more like an evangelist. But that doesn't take away from the great message.
