26. Dearest Lord, You’ve Called Us Here

1. Dearest Lord, You’ve called us here,

And opened up Your heart.

Oh, the joy to hear Your call,

And enter in the Ark.

Saving us from day to day,

O Lord, this is Your way.

In Yourself we stay afloat,

Above this wicked age today.


Thank You, Lord, in Your eyes we find grace,

And with open hearts we come to You.

Regardless what our friends might say to us, or do,

O Lord Jesus, we love You.


2. Seeking of this age to taste,

And of it have a part.

If we only knew, dear Lord,

The way we grieve Your heart.

We would come and turn to You

With a repenting heart,

And would give ourselves to be

With You, O Lord, inside the Ark.


Thank You, Lord, in Your eyes we find grace,

And with open hearts we come to You.

Regardless what our friends might say to us, or do,

O Lord Jesus, we love You.


3. Praise You Lord! We’re safe in You,

Outside death-waters pour.

Many things that I once loved,

Are on the ocean floor.

Keep us open to You, Lord,

Don’t let us miss the mark.

Hallelujah, praise the Lord,

We’re here within the church, the Ark.


Thank You, Lord, in Your eyes we find grace,

And with open hearts we come to You.

Regardless what our friends might say to us, or do,

O Lord Jesus, we love You.
