Resplendence of the first day morn
Shines on baby-King now born
Illumination of Holy Nativity
Impacting eternal destiny

Onward through the ages
He awaits the call divine

Amazement whispers in sacred air
In the temple, wisdom found so rare
Son of Joseph, kind and loving
Son of God, growing boy-King

Onward through the ages
He hears the call divine

In the wilderness journeys one called John
Prepares the way for Godís own Son
Baptized in flowing waters Jordan
Heavens open, Spirit upon Him

Onward through the ages
He heeds the call divine.

At Capernaum, on shores of Galilee
Dropping nets and lives to be
Faithful to the One who came
To forgive and heal in Godís Name

Onward through the ages
Twelve hear the call divine.

Compassion drives His wondrous deeds
Disciples follow where He leads
Heal the sick, raise the dead
The faithful follow all He said

Jesus teaches of the Kingdom
In parable and sermon
And by the holy life He lives
We learn to live by all Christ gives

Onward through the ages
Christ lives the call divine

Shadows of the cross span the hill of Calvary
Where the blood flowing from the Lamb was spilt for thee
Three days later Jesus arose triumphantly
At the right hand of the Father, Christ gains the victory

Onward through the ages
He completes the call divine

The Apostolic age ensues, Pentecostal power endues
The young church preaches our Lordís good news
Miraculous signs follow in Jesusí Name
Anointing the sick and healing the lame

Much wider grows the Kingdom, from Rome to Antioch
To Greece and Macedonia, founded on Peter the Rock
Paul journeys many places, James even goes to Spain
All suffer persecutions, working in His Name.

The Apostles and the Early Fathers, bound by holy passion
Shepherding the people to fulfill the Great Commission
James the Just, Ignatius, and St. Clement of Rome
Just a few who lead the flock to Jesus, our Shalom!

Onward through the ages
They spread the call divine

On the Isle of Patmos, Beloved John did see
Apocalyptic revelation that is yet to be
Message to the churches, proclamations from the Throne
Millennium, New Jerusalem, many visions shown

Onward through the ages
John writes the call divine

One hundred years have now unfurled
Radical changing of Godís whole world
One century of the Fatherís plan
To seek and rescue all of man

Onward through the ages
Still, God speaks the call divine
