From the Nets of Our Labor (We Will Rise Up And Follow)

Representative Text

1 From the nets of our labors,
through the noise and confusion,
from the city or seashore,
Jesus summons us all.

We will rise up and follow,
Christ before and beside us,
loving pattern to guide us,
as we answer the call.

2 When we faint and grow weary
from the bearing of burdens,
with a message of comfort,
Jesus summons us all. [Refrain]

3 In the eyes of the stranger—
tearful, joyous, or frightened—
in the face of each neighbor,
Jesus summons us all. [Refrain]

4 When we hear words of hatred
spreading fear or false witness,
words that cry to be challenged,
Jesus summons us all. [Refrain]

5 In each moment of courage,
steadfast even through trembling;
in the yearning for justice,
Jesus summons us all. [Refrain]

6 Like disciples before us,
from the city or seashore,
risking selfless compassion:
Jesus summons us all. [Refrain]
