This song was originally written in the 1930s by Frank Houghton, an Anglican bishop and missionary to CHINA. It was written calling for 200 NEW missionaries to China during a time of great civil unrest within the territory [ sounds familiar? ]
Two hundred missionaries ANSWERED the call and from fewer than 750,000 Christians in the 1930s, the Church grew to more than 80 million today.
The song I am singing is an an adaptation of the version that was revived by Keith and Kristyn Getty. I changed the "Thee" "Thy" and other words that I felt were too high register.
