“THE” call of God is sounding clear,
O “CHRISTIAN,” let it reach thine ear;
“ENDEAVOR” now of souls to bring
A “BAND”to love and serve the King.
Let us go forth, the call is clear,
Let us go forth, no tarrying here;
For Him to live, the Christ, the Lord,
A crown from Him, our high reward.
Let us go forth, as call’d of God,
Redeem’d by Jesus’ precious blood;
His love to show, His life to live,
His message speak,His mercy give.
Let “Christ alone” our watchword be–
The Son of God who made us free;
He bore our sins, He makes us pure,
For His name’s sake we all endure.
The Christ of God to glorify,
His grace in us to magnify,–
His word of life to all make known,
Be this our work, and this alone.
El Nathan/James McGranahan
