The Summons

(Will You Come and Follow Me)

 

 

Lyrics by John Bell

of the Iona Community in Scotland

 

 

 

Will you come and follow me

if I but call your name?
Will you go where you don't know

and never be the same?
Will you let my love be shown?

Will you let my name be known,
will you let my life be grown

in you and you in me?

 

Will you leave yourself behind

if I but call your name?
Will you care for cruel and kind

and never be the same?
Will you risk the hostile stare

should your life attract or scare?
Will you let me answer prayer

in you and you in me?

 

Will you let the blinded see

if I but call your name?
Will you set the prisoners free

and never be the same?
Will you kiss the leper clean

and do such as this unseen,
and admit to what I mean

in you and you in me?

 

Will you love the you you hide

if I but call your name?
Will you quell the fear inside

and never be the same?
Will you use the faith you've found

to reshape the world around,
through my sight and touch and sound

in you and you in me?

 

Lord your summons echoes true

when you but call my name.
Let me turn and follow you

and never be the same.
In Your company Ill go

where Your love and footsteps show.
Thus Ill move and live and grow

in you and you in me.

 

Midi Tune: Kelvingrove
