Our God, you called to Moses to set your people free.
What wrongly some suppose is: He answered easily.
“I’m not the one you’re seeking!” he seemed instead to say.
“My strength is not in speaking; God, find another way!”
And yet, O Lord, you told him to trust in what you said.
Your strength would surely hold him through every day ahead.
Though many would oppose him, by your own name he’d know:
You were the one who chose him to help your people go.
You call each congregation to serve the lost and poor.
We doubt our own vocation; we ask, “Lord, are you sure?”
Yet you give gifts for sharing, you show us what to say.
Your Spirit gives us daring to serve Christ every day.
