God's call goes out through all the earth.What shall our answer be?Let us consider what God asksAnd answer truthfully.As Jesus walked he called to some,To fishers by the sea.He said, "Lay down your nets and come."They followed; so can we.The lost are found; the strayed return;The aimless find their way,For by God's grace we now discernOur place in the new day.God's call goes out through all the earth.What shall our answer be?If Thou, O Lord, art God-with-usThen let us be with Thee.

God's Call Goes Out
As I was looking over the lectionary passages for next Sunday I, once again, realized that I had written a hymn back in 1982 that was good for this Sunday. "God's Call Goes Out" is to be sung to the tune St. Anne.
