For The Sake Of The Call Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

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 waters edge
Told a story that few could believe or 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

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

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
And we'll answer

Oh 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, yeah
For the sake of the call, yeah oh
