That’s When Jesus Calls

In the midst of your troubles when life seems so hard
You try to find rest but don’t get very far
Life just seems so messed up wherever you are
That’s when Jesus calls

In the midst of the pain and illness you face
All of your body seems out of place
One thing or another makes your health a waste
That’s when Jesus calls

He calls us to show mercy
He calls us to show grace
He calls us to take heed and look above
When you are at the bottom
Be still and hear His voice
He’s calling you testify
He’s calling you to lift Him high
He’s calling you to tell of His great love

When it seems that we’re in the worst battles of life
And wherever we turn it just adds to our strife
That’s when we have to give praise we’re alive
For that’s when Jesus calls

In the midst of struggle
Mercies are all new
In the midst of struggle
His grace still blesses you
In the midst of struggle
Be careful what you do
This is the best time to praise His name

He calls us to show mercy
He calls us to show grace
He calls us to take heed and look above
When you are at the bottom
Be still and hear His voice
He’s calling you testify
He’s calling you to lift Him high
He’s calling you to tell of His great love

Somewhere

I was wandr’ing through life going nowhere
My path even unknown to me
I wallowed in sin
As I struggled to win
My anguish was buried beneath

Then a voice came to me from somewhere
And called me to somewhere unknown
I determined to go
Down this new, unknown road
Perhaps this somewhere could calm my soul

As I followed that voice it led somewhere
To a place so amazing to me
A peace filled my soul
While true joy sweetly flowed
I knew this was somewhere so sweet

The someone who called me was Jesus
The somewhere was close to His side
Somehow He found me
And lent me His mercy
His helped my soul to survive

If you’re trav’lling through this life lonely
Heading somewhere that you do not know
His voice calls to you
To come somewhere new
You’ll find refuge for your troubled soul
