The Call

I’ve known his voice since I was born,

It speaks the name Love then bestowed,

whose sound awakes the longing heart

with the wonder of the Eternal Word.

A shepherd’s care and watchful eye

have led my feet through all my years

where Spirit danced, her wonders sown

revealing joy in midst of fears.

A home in cloistered sanctuary

and place of enclosed soul retreat

as wisdom’s prayer its healing brought,

 and courage gave to cautious feet.

For everything there is a time

and now that love secure is known

and scholars pen has found its mark

Christ’s invitation I now may own.

Now is the time, here is the place,

Where call, at last, may answered be.

To grow the Kingdom of his love,

and in each face, his image see.
