The Call

 

Can you hear it down the ages

Like a mighty trumpet sound

A call to leave the night

And step into the morning

 

It’s a call to joy and gladness

In a world of war and pain

And yet it sounds a not e of danger

And of warning

 

It’s a call to leave your treasures

And your trinkets on the road

It’s a call to join the weeping

And to bear the suffer’s load

 

It’s a call to live like fools

By another set of rules

Well, it’s a call to take

Your cross in hand and follow

Yes, it’s a call to take

Your cross in hand and follow

 

It’s a call to love the stranger

It’s a call to live as friends

In a world that says

Good fences make good neighbors

 

And it’s a call to face the makers of

Destruction and of war

And to plead that we

Put down those guns and sabres

 

It’s a call to death and dying

It’s a call to life and birth

And it’s a call to plant the seeds of love

On barren planet earth

 

It’s a call to live like fools

By another set of rules

It’s a call to take

Your cross in hand and follow

Yes, it’s a call to take

Your cross in hand and follow

 

I hear the music and it’s callin’ me

Come and be all that you were born to be

Oh if anybody would come after me

Take up your cross and follow

 

It’s a blood-stained invitation

To a life of sacrifice

A call to walk the road

That leads from here to glory

 

It’s a joyful expectation

Of the dawning of that day

When God shall write

The final chapter in the story

 

It’s a cal to be the lowly

And it’s a call to be the least

It’s a call to join the fasting

That shall lead to final feast

 

It’s a call to live like fools

By another set of rules

It’s a call to take

Your cross in hand and follow

Yes, it’s a call to take

Your cross in hand and follow

 

I hear that music, and it’s calling me

Come and be all that you were born to be

And if anybody would come after me

Take up your cross and follow

 

Take up your cross and follow!
