Jesus Calls Us Here to Meet Him

Jesus calls us here to meet Him,
as through word, and song, and prayer,
we affirm God’s promised presence
where His people live and care.
Praise the God who keeps His promise;
praise the Son who calls us friends;
praise the Spirit who, among us,
to our hopes and fears attends.

Jesus calls us to confess Him
Word of Life and Lord of all,
sharer of our flesh and frailness
saving all who fail or fall.
Tell His holy human story;
tell His tales that all may hear;
tell the world that Christ in glory
came to earth to meet us here.

Jesus calls us to each each other:
Found in Him are no divides.
Race and gender, class and language:
such are barriers He derides.
Join the hands of friend and stranger;
join the hands of age and youth;
join the faithful and the doubter
in their common search for Truth.

Will You Come and Follow Me

Will you come and follow me if I but call your name?
Will you go where you don’t know and never be the same?
Will you let My love be shown;
will you let My name be known;
will you let My life be grown in you and you in Me?

Will you leave yourself behind if I but call your name?
will you care for cruel and kind and never be the same?
Will you risk the hostile stare
should your life attract or scare?
Will you let Me answer prayer in you and you in Me?

Will you let the blinded see if I but call your name?
Will you set the prisoners free and never be the same?
Will you kiss the leper clean,
and do such as this unseen,
and admit to what I mean in you and you in Me?

Will you love the “you” you hide if I but call your name?
Will you quell the fear inside and never be the same?
Will you use the faith you’ve found
to reshape the world around,
through My sight and touch and sound
in you and you in Me?

Lord, Your summons echoes true
when You but call my name.
Let me turn and follow You and never be the same.
In Your company I’ll go
where Your love and footsteps show.
Thus I’ll move and live and grow in You and You in me.
