Call to Duty
I was drifting on life's sea,|
When the Savior came to me,
And I learned to love and trust him ever more,
For I learned that 'twas His word,
Told to those that ne'er had heard,
Prepares their souls to journey to that golden shore.
Precious Lord I trust in thee,
Savior, Guide, I know you'll be,
Leading me to greater works
Dear Lord, for thee.
Lord, I promise now to serve
And from duty will not swerve,
Find a work, dear Lord, for idle hands to do.
Lord, it is not meet or just that I stand idle.
Lord, I must take my cross and,
Dear Lord, follow after you..
Give me work, dear Lord, I pray,
Let me labor every day,
Keep me always as a bearer of Thy word,
When my work for You is through,
And I'm home at last with You.
Give me peace and love, Dear Lord, as my reward.
Yes, I know that You are near,
I can feel Your presence here,
Know that You are always watching over me,
Know that you will be my guide,
'Till I reach the other side.
There abide and rest with you eternally,
