WLP (W 807)   Put down your nets and follow me


Piano     PARTS 

1. "Put down your nets and follow me,"
Our Lord and Master said; 
And so they followed, willingly,
Not knowing where he led.

2. We too are called from our concerns
to follow Our Lord's way.
By trusting Him the heart soon learns
to cast off yesterday.

3. Do not be tempted by the cares
of long deluded dreams;
temptation's path is wrought with snares
and never as it seems.

4. The phantom riches we pursue
are never ours to gain. 
They fade before our eyes like dew
after a morning rain.

5. "Put down your nets and follow me,"
Our Lord and Master said; 
O may we follow faithfully,
well knowing where He leads.




WLP (763): As we gather at Your table


Piano    Parts

1 As we gather at your table,
as we listen to your Word,
help us know, O God, your presence;
let our hearts and minds be stirred.
Nourish us with sacred story
till we claim it as our own;
teach us through this holy banquet
how to make Love’s vict’ry known.
2 Turn our worship into witness
in the sacrament of life;
send us forth to love and serve you,
bringing peace where there is strife.
Give us, Christ, your great compassion
to forgive as you forgave;
may we still behold your image
in the world you died to save.
3 Gracious Spirit, help us summon
other guests to share that Feast
where triumphant Love will welcome
those who had been last and least.
There no more will envy blind us
nor will pride our peace destroy,
as we join with saints and angels
to repeat the sounding joy.



WLP (757)   Will you come and follow me?



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?

Christ your summons echoes true when you but call my name.
Let me turn and follow you and never be the same.
In Your company I'll go where Your love and footsteps show.
Thus I'll move and live and grow in you and you in me.


WLP (761): All who hunger gather gladly


Piano    Parts

All who hunger, gather gladly;
holy manna is our bread.
Come from wilderness and wandering.
Here, in truth, we will be fed.
You that yearn for days of fullness,
all around us is our food.
Taste and see the grace eternal.
Taste and see that God is good.

All who hunger, never strangers;
seeker, be a welcome guest.
Come from restlessness and roaming.
Here, in joy, we keep the feast.
We that once were lost and scattered
in communion’s love have stood.
Taste and see the grace eternal.
Taste and see that God is good.

All who hunger, sing together;
Jesus Christ is living bread.
Come from loneliness and longing.
Here, in peace, we have been led.
Blest are those who from this table
live their lives in gratitude.
Taste and see the grace eternal.
Taste and see that God is good.

WLP (W758)   Tu has venido a la orilla


Piano     PARTS

Tu has venido a la orilla,
no has buscado, a sabios ni a ricos,
tan solo quieres que yo te siga.

REFRAIN:
Jesús, me has mirado a los ojos,
sonriendo, has dicho mi nombre,
en la arena he dejado mi barca,
junto a ti buscaré otro mar.

Tu, sabes bien lo que tengo,
en mi barca no hay oro ni espada,
tan solo redes y mi trabajo.
[Refrain]

Tu, necesitas mis manos,
mi cansancio que a otros descanse,
amor que quiera seguir amando.
[Refrain]

Tu, Pesacador de otros lagos,
ansia eterna, de almas que esperan,
amigo bueno, que asi me llamas.
[Refrain]


You have come down to the lakeshore
Seeking neither the wise nor the wealthy,
But only asking for me to follow.

REFRAIN
O Jesus, you have looked into my eyes,
Kindly smiling, you've called out my name.
On the sand I've abandoned my small boat;
Now with you, I will seek other seas.

You know full well what I have, Lord;
Neither treasure nor weapons for conquest,
Just these my fishnets and will for working.
[Refrain]

You need my hands, my exhaustion,
Working love for the rest of the weary,
A love that's willing to go on loving.
[Refrain]

You who have fished other waters;
You, the longing of souls that are yearning;
O loving Friend, you have come to call me.
[Refrain]
