Answering Your Call
Today I’m answering Your call –
To preach Your word and tend to all;
My gifts I bring, to serve Your church,
To speak of hope to those on earth.
Give me strength my foes to meet –
Your words of truth and not defeat;
To calm my fears and hurts unknown,
Both through Your peace and mercy shown.
Show me Your will through truth and love –
Blessed by Your Spirit from above;
Help me to serve with courage Lord,
With mind and heart in one accord.
I seek Your guidance in my task –
Through counsel, prayers, and tears I ask;
Grant me Your grace each day to lead,
Those who gather, those in need.
With joy I come, my life outpour –
A broken vessel, open door;
Grant me Your grace to walk each day,
Each through Your words, Your truth, Your Way.
