Go Into the World

In this video, Tom discusses his song "Go Into the World" with friend and fellow composer Curtis Stephan. Inspired by the wisdom of Saint Teresa of Calcutta and Cardinal Daniel DiNardo, Tom Booth composed a more thoughtful kind of mission song  with a slow Gospel style that prayerfully calls us to share Christ with the world. But the song also calls us to immerse ourselves in humanity — to be of service through and for Christ. For it is by our actions that we are asked to spread the Good News.

"Go into the world,
loving the people that you meet.
Let your presence light new light in others,
in their hearts.

"Seek out the poor, the sick and the lonely.
Let mercy lead, as you have received,
for they are my sheep."
