My missionaries in a foreign field

from Coldplay – Viva la Vida Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

He wants to spread this good news to everyone.

In ancient times, battles were fought on fields. This can be understood to mean the king wants missionaries to tell everyone about the news of Jesus, even the enemies they fight in foreign battlegrounds.

Everyone would sign up if this was the missionary.
