Demons

I should be writing about demons right now for Church History, but this son just came on my iPod and I thought with Holy Week approaching, and tomorrow being Passion Sunday, this was appropriate. Do we answer the calls in our lives? Following God leads to a some boards and nails...and sometimes to seminary. This was the best tempo recording of it I could find. I actually like it a little lighter and airier. Parts I like especially much bolded....this might turn into a series of reflective posts as my first year in seminary ends.

The Summons
1. Will you come and follow me
If I but call your name?
Will you go where you don't know
And never be the same?

Will you let my love be shown,
Will you let my name be known,
Will you let my life be grown
In you and you in me?

2. Will you leave yourself behind
If I but call your name?

Will you care for cruel and kind
And never be the same?
Will you risk the hostile stare
Should your life attract or scare?

Will you let me answer prayer
In you and you in me?

3. Will you let the blinded see
If I but call your name?
Will you set the prisoners free
And never be the same?
Will you kiss the leper clean
And do such as this unseen,
And admit to what I mean
In you and you me?

4. Will you love the 'you' you hide
If I but call your name?

Will you quell the fear inside
And never be the same?

Will you use the faith you've found
To reshape the world around,
Through my sight and touch and sound
In you and you in me?

5. Lord, your summons echoes true
When you but call my name
Let me turn and follow you
And never be the same
In your company I'll go
Where your love and footsteps show
Thus I'll move and live and grow
In you and you in me
