All that Binds Us – v2

We need to cut loose
the cords, the tethers,
all that binds us
here to the earth

We must let go of our comfort
leaving behind all
not being held by
the things of the earth

God calls us
out of our comfort
to go and to continue
our Master’s work

To go, to follow
our Savior ever
to be His witnesses
to the ends of the earth
