On July 3, 2017, a new hymn named "Blood of Missionaries Is Shed in the Right Place" composed by Xiao Min, a well-known Chinese songwriter, is released on the WeChat account "Canaan Hymn."

The new song is to honor two Chinese preachers, Meng Li-Si and Li Xinheng, who were kidnapped and killed by the Islamic State in Pakistan on May 24 according to Reuters. The official account introduces, "Regarding the issue of Pakistan and two missionaries, much information was exposed and reported both on the Internet or by public media. Sister Xiao Min, the maidservant of God, was moved by the Holy Spirit that she wrote down Blood of Missionaries Is Shed in the Right Place, the 1810th song of Canaan Hymn.

Meanwhile, it hopes that we can mark more what lots of missionaries sacrificed for China in the history and that the Chinese church today can wake up and arise to undertake the Great Commission. 

Below are the lyrics: 

The blood of missionaries is shed in the right place
Their touching stories are spread in the world
The closest kin feel extremely sad
The Lord will comfort them, turn grief into power
Look at their faces that were beautiful and serene
At young age, the golden time
They devoted their lives
My heart can't be calm
My tears flow
I'm ready to be a martyr
And walk on the road of evangelization in the West
Your blood shall not be bled in vain
Instead, will be the power in that place
Pakistan, wait for us
The Chinese church will keep on heading to you
Pakistan, wait for us
The Chinese church will keep on heading to you
