For the cause of Christ the King
We give our lives, an offering
'Til all the earth resounds
With ceaseless praise
To the Son
For the cause of Christ we go
With joy to reap, with faith to sow
As many see
And many put their trust in the Son
Christ we proclaim,
The Name above every name:
For all creation,
Through the Son!
For the King once lifted high
To cries of rage, of 'crucify!'
Endured the cross
As every sin was laid
On the Son
To the King who conquered death
To free the poor and the oppressed
For lasting peace
For life and liberty
In the Son
Let it be my life's refrain:
To live is Christ, to die is gain;
Deny myself, take up my cross
And follow the Son
"For the Cause" is a new hymn, written with Stuart Townend, on the call to missions and the cause of the Kingdom around the world. This song is dedicated to Danny Akin and our friends at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary who have and continue to send out countless missionaries to every corner of the world.
Keith and Kristyn Getty occupy a unique space in the world of music today as preeminent modern hymn writers. In re-inventing the traditional hymn form, they have created a catalogue of songs teaching Christian doctrine and crossing the genres of traditional, classical, folk and contemporary composition which are sung the world over.
Keith and Kristyn Getty continue to be global ambassadors for modern hymns in the USA and throughout the world. In addition to their Christmas show, the Gettys tour internationally, visiting venues as diverse as the Ryman Auditorium, Belfast's Waterfront Hall, The Pentagon, and Royal Albert Hall, with performances for George W. Bush, the United Nations, and South Korea President Lee Myung-bak.
Keith and Kristyn live between Northern Ireland and Nashville with their daughters, Eliza Joy, Charlotte, and Grace.
