How Clear Is Our Vocation, Lord

Author: Fred Pratt Green (1903-) Hymnal: Common Praise (1998) #466 (1998) Meter: 8.6.8.8.6.6 Topics: Call and Vocation Lyrics: 1 How clear is our vocation, Lord, when once we heed your call: to live according to your word, and daily learn, refreshed, restored, that you are Lord of all, and will not let us fall. 2 But if, forgetful, we should find your yoke is hard to bear; if worldly pressures fray the mind and love itself cannot unwind its tangled skein of care: our inward life repair. 3 We mark your saints, how they became in hindrances more sure, whose joyful virtues put to shame the casual way we wear your name, and by our faults obscure your power to cleanse and cure. 4 In what you give us, Lord, to do, together or alone, in old routines or ventures new, may we not cease to look to you, the cross you hung upon, all you endeavoured done. Scripture: Matthew 10:24-39 Tune Title: REPTON

Living Lord of Love's Dominion

Author: David A. Robb (1932-) Hymnal: Common Praise (1998) #453 (1998) Meter: 8.7.8.7 D Topics: Call and Vocation Lyrics: 1 Living Lord of Love's dominion, sovereign Saviour, bless your church ; call us still as your disciples -- loving, serving, while we search. Gathered: feed our deepest being prophet's truth and godly nerve; scattered: let our lives' fruition nourish others while we serve. 2 Visit towns and inner cities; penetrate our steel and stone with a love that melt our coldness, making mission here our own. We will seek you, love transfigured, in our neighbour's need until deep within our daily service love draws forth our utmost skill. 3 With your bread, your wine, your Spirit, nurture us for your intent; let your will be our vocation lived as song and sacrament. May compassion lead to service till we join the saints above; grant us hope for each tomorrow; fill our faith with vibrant love! Scripture: Ezekiel 36:24-28 Tune Title: PLEADING SAVIOUR

Jesus Calls Us! O'er the Tumult

Author: Cecil Frances Alexander (1818-1895) Hymnal: Common Praise (1998) #432 (1998) Meter: 8.7.8.7 Topics: Call and Vocation Lyrics: 1 Jesus calls us! O'er the tumult of our life's wild, restless sea, day by day his clear voice soundeth, saying, "Christian, follow me!" 2 As of old Saint Andrew heard it by the Galilean lake, turned from home and toil and kindred, leaving all for his dear sake. 3 Jesus calls us from the worship of the vain world's golden store; from each idol that would keep us, saying, "Christian, love me more." 4 In our joys and in our sorrows, days of toil and hours of ease, still he calls, in cares and pleasures, "Christian, love me more than these." 5 Jesus calls us! By thy mercies, Saviour, may we hear thy call, give our hearts to thine obedience, serve and love thee best of all. Scripture: Matthew 4:12-23 Languages: English Tune Title: ST. OSWALD

Great God, Your Love Has Called Us Here

Author: Brian Wren (1936-) Hymnal: Common Praise (1998) #442 (1998) Meter: 8.8.8.8.8.8 Topics: Call and Vocation Lyrics: 1 Great God, your love has called us here as we, by love, for love were made. Your living likeness still we bear, though marred, dishonoured, disobeyed. We come, with all our heart and mind your call to hear, your love to find. 2 We come with self-inflicted pains of broken trust and chosen wrong; half-free, half-bound by inner chains; by social forces swept along, by powers and systems close confined; yet seeking hope for humankind. 3 Great God, in Christ you call our name and then receive us as your own not through some merit, right, or claim, but by your gracious love alone. We strain to glimpse your mercy seat and find you kneeling at our feet. 4 Then take the towel, and break the bread, and humble us, and call us friends. Suffer and serve till all are fed, and show how grandly love intends to work till all creation sings, to fill all worlds, to crown all things. 5 Great God, in Christ you set us free your life to live, your joy to share. Give us your Spirit's liberty to turn from guilt and dull despair and offer all that faith can do while love is making all things new. Scripture: Matthew 14:13-21 Tune Title: ST. PETERSBURG

Thus chosen, now, O Lord, we ask for faith in your unfailing grace to make us equal to the task. 2 You call us, Lord, to care for self and neighbour too, to take the risk, and dare to show what love can do. Thus chosen, now, O Lord, we ask for faith in your unfailing grace to make us equal to the task. 3 You call us, Lord, to be good stewards of the earth; to tend to it as a place of blessedness and worth. Thus chosen, now, O Lord, we ask for faith in your unfailing grace to make us equal to the task. 4 You call us, Lord, to serve: to die that we may live, to know we best receive when joyfully we give. Thus chosen, now, O Lord, we ask for faith in your unfailing grace to make us equal to the task. Scripture: Leviticus 19:1-2 Tune Title: RHOSYMEDRE

Stand Up, Stand Up for Jesus

Author: George Duffield, Jr. (1818-1888) Hymnal: Common Praise (1998) #461 (1998) Meter: 7.6.7.6 D Topics: Call and Vocation Lyrics: 1 Stand up, stand up for Jesus, you soldiers of the cross! Lift high his royal banner, it must not suffer loss. From victory on to victory his army he shall lead till evil is defeated, and Christ is Lord indeed. 2 Stand up, stand up for Jesus! The trumpet call obey; then join the mighty conflict in this his glorious day. Be strong in faith and serve him, against unnumbered foes; let courage rise with danger, and strength to strength oppose. 3 Stand up, stand up for Jesus! Stand in his power alone, for human might will fail you -- you dare not trust your own. Put on the gospel armour, keep watch with constant prayer; when duty calls or danger, be never failing there. 4 Stand up, stand up for Jesus! The fight will not be long: this day the noise of battle, the next the victor's song. To everyone who conquers, a crown of life shall be; we, with the king of glory, shall reign eternally. Scripture: Matthew 12:22-32 Tune Title: MORNING LIGHT
