5/28/17 Through 6/3/17

5/28/17 Through 6/3/17

Ascended on Your glorious throne
You left the world, but not alone
You promised something greater yet
To send the Holy advocate

You made the duty ours to own
To make Your name, to all men known
To make disciples in all lands
And thus fulfill the Father's plans

Lord, now we see that You know all
Help us to answer to Your call
Send Your Spirit fresh and new
To help us do the things You do.

I wish to say with conscience clear
To all of you I hold so dear
That I have shown quite clear the trail
It's up to you to now prevail

At times I've stumbled on the way
With things I do and things I say
But love has been my final goal
To fill your heart and warm your soul

In haste she went to greet the one
Thought barren, now with child
Within her carrying the Son,
Yet pure and undefiled

The Spirit rushed upon the two
When e're they heard the sound
That greeting from the virgin who
Within the Christ was found

The lowly lifted high above
The proud in their conceit
A satisfying gift of love
The hungry now shall eat.

Unity a far off thought
So distant and obscure
A thing our blessed Savior taught
And prayed would long endure

But many varied ways have come
And each new one would say
They've found a better way to plumb
The depths of God today

Peter, do yo love me?
The question haunts us all
Repentant eyes can see 
And answer to His call

Though we have greatly sinned
His call to us remains
His gaze on us undimmed
For His love never wanes

He calls on every single soul
In some peculiar way
For each completes the Master's whole
If they go not astray

So what concern is this of yours
What is the other's call
My path of love for you assures
Your rise and not your fall.
