Answer the Call

Our identity is fake; what difference does it make?
We canít see eye to eye.
God tells us to love, and be tame as a dove.
But we would rather just fight and die.

We push and shove and forget about love.
We would rather have our own way.
Why canít we listen to Jesusí words?
Itís as if He had nothing to say.

Canít we all get along and sing the same song?
Singing His praises would be a good start.
We could stand hand in hand all across this great land.
And lift up our voice as one heart.

Then crime and divorce would run out its course.
Abuse and addictions would be no more.
No offense would be taken to leave us all shaken.
No longer would we feel hate to the core.

You would all be my brother as we lift up each other.
We could help set the wrongs to be right.
Helping a friend would be the thing that is in,
As we commit to bring him the Light.

Set your eyes upon Jesus and see as He sees us.
Take heed to all His commands.
To bare others burdens; of that weíd be certain.
Weíd be deaf to Satanís demands.

So reach out your hand and with me take a stand
To spread the great Gospel to all.
We have a sure mission that is His commission.
Why donít we all answer His call?

Such a powerful, heartfelt message to be given through an awesome rhyme scheme. It's perfect, just like the One who inspired it is perfect!
