The Call

But the Lord took me from following the flock, and the Lord said to me, ‘Go, prophesy to my people Israel.’
Amos 7:15

Simple men but faithful at their task
were the type of men God would ask
to take His word to His nation
and speak for Him with determination

A shepherd and keeper of fig trees
Amos was called to speak what God would please
confronting kings, warning of sword
the prophet delivered the word of the Lord

Even today simple men reach
the world with the gospel call to preach
good news to mankind's sinful situation
proclaiming God's Word is their occupation

A call from God is sounding clear
to those He equips to know and to bear
gospel teaching to every land
empowered by God's almighty hand
