When He Calls
Words and music by Ray Boltz and Steve Millikan
In a land far away
A little boy lay
Asleep in his bed
Then he heard a voice call
There was no doubt at all
He knew just what it said
He had heard it before
And he could not ignore
What he thought
Was too good to be true
For the words of a wise man
Had opened his eyes
And he knew what he needed to do
CHORUS:
When He calls
When He calls
Just say, Lord, I am listening
When He calls
When He calls
Just be ready to obey
For there's no greater joy
Than hearing Him call your name
Well, the little boy's gone
But life still goes on
Day after day
And if God spoke back then
He can do it again
In a nuclear age
Have you heard it before
And just chose to ignore
What your mind thought
Was only a dream
If He's speaking to you
This is what you should do
And it's not quite
As strange as it seems
CHORUS (repeat)
