You heard my calling to wife and job and home
Quiet whispers of tenderness oh my child the one I love
But I spoke through the prophets, my word was written down
My Word is for freedom, and my call is to die for those I love.

Aaa - Ah My will is not your own;
Aaa - Ah My call is not to comfortable life or home
My call is to suffer; lay down your life.

You want to be like me, full of peace and joy and light
Like a saint walking righteously, to the likes of those you’re like.
But I cared for the outcast, the homeless and the poor
If you seek to follow, then your cross is to give your life to those.

Aaa - Ah My will is not your own;
Aaa - Ah My call is not to loving only men who love you
My call is to suffer; lay down your life.

Let this glass pass from me
I don’t want to give my life and die for enemies.
But let your will be done in me, 
I will drink the cup of death that you’ve prepared for me,
and for those I love.

Abba My will will be Your own;
Abba My call is not to reign in the way they hoped
My call is to suffer, Father here’s my life

As you say we are, we are: one.
As you prayed we would, would become:
As you say.

As you say we are, we are: one.
As you prayed we would, would become:

As you say;
Father let your will be done.
In your Spirit make us one.
 
In the end your love will mend us,
But till then to mend you use us.

As you say:
Father let your will be done.
In your Spirit make us one.

Here am I God to answer your call;
I am your servant and listening.
You are the God who bled for us all
Where you will lead I'll follow.

Father let your will be done.
In your Spirit make us one.
Father let your will be done.
Father let your will be done.
Oh bruising God, Lover of my soul
I long to long for you
Your people sing Your people cry
Lord raise your body once again

Stars they sing of love
Nature groans for you
Creatures made of dust
Oh we wait for you

I get so lost in the waves of the day
My heart grows cold; renew my soul
Bring back the flood, cover all of the earth
And end our evil once again

Weary souls, look up
Weary hearts, look up
You were made for love
Your were made for love

I was made for love
I was made for love
I was made for love
I was made for you

Lord shatter my heart
Break me apart
And teach me to love you
Lord open my arms
To your sons and your daughters
Teach me to love them

I was made for love
I was made for love
I was made for love
I was made for love

Lord shatter my heart
Break me apart
And teach me to love you
Lord open my arms
To your sons and your daughters
Teach me to love them

I was made for love
I was made for love
I was made for love
I was made for love
