Christ called us to become His church,
In service and in prayer.
To go out into all the world,
and bring His presence there.

He's calling you, He's calling me,
To work his master plan,
Our Carpenter will build His church,
With our imperfect hands.

He sanctified our sinful hearts,
With His abundant grace,
And left us gifts to help us meet,
The challenges we'd face.

Marked by the Spirit to be saints,
Despite our sinful shame,
We are to join with everyone,
Who calls upon His name.

Christ calls us to become His church,
Until He comes again,
When all humanity is joined,
To sing the great amen.
