God calls us together

Into our worship
from the stirrings
the whispers within our hearts
we are here for a purpose
gathered in the temple
within the sanctuary
a people called here
God calls us together
to hear a message
to be a people
ambassadors commissioned
witnesses sent
to testify to the world
of God’s endless grace
love pouring down
washing over us
overflowing, sending us
to go and do his work
