Helping us remember the person of Jesus, sibling band CAIN has penned this tender ballad that recounts Jesus’ bittersweet departure from the earth, and points to His ever-important Commission that He imparted to us.

Madison Cain Johnson, Taylor Cain Matz, and Logan Cain took the text of the Great Commission and phrased it in song form; giving it a sweet melancholy and poetic appeal.

Watch CAIN as they sing this beautiful song, “The Commission”…

 

 

“The Commission” Lyrics
See my hands, look at my feet
It’s okay, if it’s hard to believe
I have faith you will do greater things
It’s my time to go, but before I leave

Go tell the world about me
I was dead, but now I live
I’ve gotta go now for a little while
But goodbye is not the end

Don’t forget the things that I taught you
I’Ve conquered death and I hold the keys
Where I go you will go too, someday
There’s much to do – here before you leave

So, go tell the world about me
I was dead, but now I live
I’ve gotta go now for a little while
But goodbye is not the end

End of the journey
The end of the road
My spirit is with you
Wherever you go
You have a purpose
And I have a plan
I’ll make you this promise
I’ll come back again
But until then

Go tell the world about me
I was dead, but now I live
Oh, I’ve gotta go now for a little while
But goodbye is not the end
Oh, go tell the world about me
I’ve gotta go
For a little while
But goodbye is not the end

The lyrics of this song may sound slightly familiar because they are similar to the words that Jesus spoke in the Scripture as He delivered the Great Commission in Matthew 28. The band goes as far to say that they didn’t really write the song because it’s lyrics were already written in the Bible.

“The power in this song is that although we did write it, we really didn’t write it. It’s Scripture.”

Madison explains that the only way they felt comfortable writing from the perspective of Christ was to “take words that He said and try to put them in an everyday language.”

The take away from this powerful anthem? This world is not the end. We have a Savior who knows what we’re feeling because He lived it and He wants to help us through it.

“Jesus Christ, who has felt everything that you’re feeling, He is real. He is alive. He is with you.”

If you’re walking through a hard time or feeling the weight of this world, let these lyrics and words from Jesus Christ wash over you today:

My Spirit is with you
Wherever you go
You have a purpose
And I have a plan

As you listen to this song, we pray that you will really feel the presence of Christ, the power of His words, and the eternal hope He offers.
