From the recording The Call: To Know, Love, and Serve
Follow me is all He said, and all He said was everything that I could need. Hollow deeds had been my chorus, Solemn and victorious, praising in my sleep.
So come awake, and leave aside your fears. Come alive, and see how love is near.
I desire mercy and not sacrifice. I desire mercy. I desire mercy and not sacrifice. Come alive and follow me.
Idle, quiet in my tower, Hiding from Your reach and heavy on my feet. Then, in all His gentle power, a call for me to step out and love the one I meet.
So come awake, and leave all that you can. Come alive, and live with open hands.
Come alive….ooo. Come alive and follow me. I desire mercy.
