Crowning Call

Dawn's glory crowns the earth like
hope's glory crowns our faith...
it rends the darkness!

God, would that we would hear
The call that crowns all calls
Then count no other cause more dear
No matter what befalls

God, would that we would heed
Your still small voice within
And take captive each thought and deed
That leads us into sin

God, would that we would love
You, heart, soul, strength and mind
Committed to what You approve
Through grace and truth combined

God, would that we would claim
Your gift that sets us free
Salvation in no other name
Save Christ of Calvary

And would that we would guard 
Against appeals, more sweet
Against what does not seem so hard
When other calls compete
But, with the joy of You
As hope and peace enthralls
Would that we would yield wholly to
The call that crowns all calls

Faithful until faith's glove
From deathless soul will fall
 Forever in the presence of
The final crowning call

2 Cor.5:20-21
Therefore we are ambassadors for Christ,
 as though God were making His appeal through us. 
We implore you on behalf of Christ: 
Be reconciled to God. 
God made Him who knew no sin to be sinb on our behalf, 
so that in Him we might become the righteousness of God.
