Op de wijze van het gezang "The love of God"
van Frederick Lehmann
 

God roept ons

God roept ons: geef hong'rigen eten,
naakten kleding, zwakken steun.
Bied aan daklozen bescherming,
wees rechtvaardig, strijd voor vree.

Wees gastvrij, hou van je buren,
aan hen die rouwen: geef troost.
Wijs de weg aan hen die dwalen:
deel Gods liefde, Zijn stem.

Jezus leert ons: geef hong'rigen eten,
naakten kleding, zwakken steun.
Bied aan daklozen bescherming,
wees rechtvaardig, strijd voor vree.

Help ons, Heer: geef hong'rigen eten,
naakten kleding, zwakken steun.
Bied daklozen Uw bescherming,
wees rechtvaardig, geef ons vree.

Verlicht de weduwen en wezen,
laat gevangenen vrij.
Genees zieken, omarm vreemden,
raak ons hart, Heer, ook mij.

Raak ons hart, Heer, ook mij!


Literal translation of We Are Called:

God calls us: give the hungry food,
the naked clothing, the weak support/care.
Offer protection to the homeless,
be righteous, fight for peace.

Be hospitable, love your neighbours,
to those who mourn: give comfort.
Show the way to those who wander:
share God's love, (be) His voice.

Jesus teaches us, give the hungry food,
the naked clothing, the weak support/care.
offer protection to the homeless,
be righteous, fight for peace.

Help us, Lord: give the hungry food,
the naked clothing, the weak support/care.
Provide homeless Your protection,
be righteous, give us peace.

Ease the widows and orphans,
release the prisoners.
Heal the sick, embrace strangers,
touch our hearts, Lord, me too.

Touch our hearts, Lord, me too!
