Call to God

Call to God who gathers folks,

from where they’ve been scattered.

Don’t neglect the blind and lame, 

parents and the pregnant. 

Bring them by the road and stream, 

for their comfort matters. 

Once divided, reunite,  

underneath one pennant. 

—–

Everyone should hear the word; 

hear and know and show it.

Flocks, dispersed when wolves attacked, 

now have found redemption.

Sing the news from mountaintops. 

Shine the goodness; glow it. 

Like a watered garden, thrive. 

No one gains exemption.

—–

Women, dance and men rejoice. 

Mourning time has ended. 

Comfort all who sorrow, and 

set your sights on gladness.

By the bounty of the Lord, 

satisfaction’s mended.

Priests who serve the people’s needs, 

find their fill of fatness.

—–

Call to God who gathers folks,

from where they’ve been scattered.

Don’t neglect the blind and lame, 

parents and the pregnant. 

Bring them by the road and stream, 

for their comfort matters. 

Once divided, reunite,  

underneath one pennant.
