The biggest change since I met You
Is that I am no longer my own.
Your loving hand pushes me onward,
To call Your loved ones home.

And in the quiet, You speak:

"Tell them I love them.
Tell them Iím here.
Tell them youíve all sinned
and they have nothing to fear.

Tell them I am calling them home."

What are people supposed to do
When the Master shows them of His plan?
Canít stay in my quiet comfort zone;
Iíve felt the Most Highís hand.

And in the quiet, He spake:

"Tell them I love them.
Tell them Iím here.
Tell them youíve all sinned
and they have nothing to fear.

Tell them I am calling them home."

What that hand can do to a man;
From glory to glory, I transform.
O, the holiness of His presence
Changes a man reborn.

And in the quiet, I know:

He loves all of us.
Heís always here.
Weíve all fallen short,
but we have nothing to fear.

Our Father is calling us home.

You have nothing to fear.
Our Father is calling you home.

Be changed by His hand.
Our Father is calling you home.

Almighty, Most High,
Omnipotent Father of mine,
I know You are calling us home.

Nice structure - makes it easy to read/absorb. Nice, straightforward message.

>> Tell them youíve all sinned
and they have nothing to fear.<<

That's dangerous theology, if you ask me. I'll leave that for another topic, though...

Also, you refer to "home" a lot, without really defining it. You gotta remember your audience might not be entirely Christian...if a non-Christian read this, he might need a bit more to understand what you mean by home.

Good post.

great description of a relationship with Jesus

I guess a lot of us would rather stay in our comfort zone!
