Call to worship

From near and far

House of the Lord

Sabbath’s bright star

 

Call to worship

Doors open wide

All are welcome

Spirit shall guide

 

Call to worship

Hearing God’s Word

With reverence

His love transferred

 

Call to worship

Praising through song

Lifting voices

Together strong

 

Call to worship

Praying as one

Communal time

Blessing God’s Son

The inspiration for this poem grew from a morning devotional which featured the hymn, “All Are Welcome.”  If you wish to hear more hymns, look for MaryRuth72’s channel on YouTube.

Speaking to Thee

This short poem is inspired from two different hymns:  “Lord, Speak to Me, That I May Speak” and “I Love to Tell the Story.”

Telling His true story

Jesus, His glory reigns

Unseen, heaven above

Breaking sinful chains

 

Hungering and thirsting

Weary, endless despair

Message of Salvation

Answering these prayers

 

Firm rock, speaking to thee

Living echoes of hope

Children, lost and alone

Faith walking life’s tightrope

 

Hidden depths, troubled sea

Precious wisdom fills thee

Hearing His glowing words

Loving hand calms the sea
