The Words of Christ

So much, our worship now
the words of Christ
his teachings, his healings
his lessons for the first disciples
our clarion call
Out of our fears, our comfort
testing our faith
as he did the scribes, the Pharisees
this land of wealth, of greed
our possessions ruling our lives
His call to leave and follow me
From the words, the prayers
from deep within our hearts
Christ trying to help us choose
the way of the cross
The world, the illusion of life
in this modern age
losing sight of the one true light
our savior, our brother, our king
Cleave to the Lord,
answer the shepherd’s call
turn from the ways of the earth
and live our new birth
