For The Sake Of The Call lyrics

by Steven Curtis Chapman

For The Sake Of The Call
from the album "For The Sake Of the Call"
(NOTE: this format observes lyrical "commas"
and fits perfectly on an iPhone screen)


CHORUS 1
We will abandon it all
for the sake of the call
No other reason at all
but the sake of the call
Wholly devoted to live and to die
For the sake of the call

Nobody stood and applauded them
So they knew from the start
This road would not lead to fame
All they really knew for sure
was Jesus had called to them
He said, "Come follow me,"
and they came
With reckless abandon
they came

Empty nets lying there
at the water’s edge
Told a story that few could believe
and none could explain
How some crazy fishermen
agreed to go where Jesus lead
With no thought
for what they would gain
For Jesus had called them by name
and they answered

CHORUS 1

Drawn like the rivers
are drawn to the sea
No turning back
for the water cannot help but flow
Once we hear the Savior's call
we'll follow wherever he leads
Because of the love He has shown
And because he has called us to go
we will answer

CHORUS 2
We will abandon it all
for the sake of the call
No other reason at all
but the sake of the call
Wholly devoted to live and to die…

BRIDGE
Not for the sake
of a creed or a cause
Not for a dream or a promise
Simply because
it is Jesus who calls
And if we believe we'll obey

CHORUS REPRISE
(We will abandon it all)
We'll abandon it all
for the sake of the call
(No other reason at all)
No other reason at all
but the sake of the call

(We will abandon it all)
We'll abandon it all
for the sake of the call
(No other reason at all)
No other, no other reason at all
but the sake of the call
Wholly devoted to live and to die
For the sake of the call

For the sake of the call
(We will abandon it all)
Abandon it all
For the sake of the call
(No other reason at all)
No other reason, no other reason
(We will abandon it all)
We'll live, live and to die
(For the sake of the call)
(We will abandon it all)
