02. For The Sake Of The Call

Another Time, Another Place: Timeless Christian Classics
by Avalon



 

Nobody stood and applauded them
So they knew from the start
This road would not lead to fame
All they really knew for sure was Jesus had called to them
He said, Come, follow me
And they came
With reckless abandon they came

Empty nets lying there at the water's edge
Told a story that few could believe and none could explain
How some crazy fishermen agreed to go where Jesus led
With no thought for what they would gain
For Jesus had called them by name and they answered

We will abandon it all for the sake of the call
No other reason at all but the sake of the call
Wholly devoted to live and to die
For the sake of the call

Drawn like rivers are drawn to the sea
no turning back for the water cannot help but flow
Once we hear the Savior's call we'll follow wherever He leads
Because of the love He has shown
Because He has called us to go we will answer

We will abandon it all for the sake of the call
No other reason at all but the sake of the call
Wholly devoted to live and to die

Not for the sake of a creed or a cause
Not for a dream or a promise
Simply because it is Jesus who calls
And if we believe we'll obey

We will abandon it all for the sake of the call
No other reason at all but the sake of the call
Wholly devoted to live and to die
For the sake of the call

written Steven Curtis Chapman c1990 Sparrow Song (a div. of The Sparrow Corp.)/Careers Music, Inc. (BMG)/Greg Nelson Music (admin. by Careers Music, Inc.) (BMG) (BMI)

Behind the Song:
"Most of us are not asked to give up much for the sake of Christ. There are, however, still martyrs in parts of the world today who give up their lives for following Jesus. God, may our passion for You be strong enough to give up whatever we need for the sake of following You." Greg Long (Avalon)
