The King Hath Commanded Me a Business

Singing and composing hymns and other songs have been part of my life since my teenage days


Composer’s Foreword

I am not good in notes, but from the local church trainings while in choir, I have come around with this hymn using another hymn. If you know the hymn beneath, then you can join me to sing this song unto the Lord.

The Composed Song

1. Jesus Christ is the King

The King of kings is he

Also came he to world

To save all human race


King (hath) commanded me a business

I ‘ll deliver the message I will

2. Clearly, he has said that

All Power in heaven

And in this pr’sent world

Is given unto him


3. Go ye into all the world

And be ye teaching them

That they always observe

All of my commandment


4. Go ye and always be

My testifier everywhere

Yea ye also should be

Baptis’ em who ‘r saved


5. Therefore as ye are going

Know ye this assuredly

That I will be with you

Everywhere ye ‘r going


6. I give you authority

To tread on the serpents

And all worldly scorpions

You need not to fear them


7. I ‘ve given you power

Over enemies power

And nothing there shall be

That ‘ld ever hurt thee


8. Go ye and go and heal

You should loose those be bound

You should always tell them

Kingdom-heaven at hand


9. Woe be unto me if

I can’t testify him

At an instant season

And out of the season


10. Gospel is the power

Of God for salvation

This is the King’s business

Let’s deliver the message
