Following God’s Call

From the first day of creation, God’s work is plainly seen, 

through all the plants and animals, with rain, it all turned green

Mankind was the best thing that God had ever made, 

redemption’s plan at this point was already laid

His calling is immutable unto His own elect, 

and with them He will build His church, a humble, holy sect

His calling is upon those who know and serve Him well, 

they all submit to suffer, the gospel thus to tell

My life to give in service, devoted to my King, 

all my talents focused on the praises I will bring

For His path is higher than what I see from here, 

and His love is deeper, it always draws me near

Opportunities that I have are given from above, 

just to show to someone else the greatness of His love

To bring to someone’s mind, to reach into the dark, 

and ignite a ready soul who’s looking for a spark

Push me out from my comfort zone, to where You’re working now, 

Your spirit works in wondrous ways and I can’t explain how

Your holy name be lifted high and we will bring You praise, 

You write our names upon Your hands, You number all our days

You vanquish all Your enemies who fall at just Your word, 

Your eye is on the sparrow, the flight of one small bird

Sharing with a baker about the living bread, 

keeping truth succinct enough to get inside his head

Loving those who know not love and sharing Your great plan, 

helping them to understand the gulf Your grace did span

For our sin has fixed a gulf, beyond which we can’t go, 

but Your truth has been revealed, the love of God we know
