From the Nets of Our Labor (We Will Rise Up And Follow)

Full Text

1 From the nets of our labors,
through the noise and confusion,
from the city or seashore,
Jesus summons us all.

Refrain:
We will rise up and follow,
Christ before and beside us,
loving pattern to guide us,
as we answer the call.

2 When we faint and grow weary
from the bearing of burdens,
with a message of comfort,
Jesus summons us all. [Refrain]

3 In the eyes of the stranger—
tearful, joyous, or frightened—
in the face of each neighbor,
Jesus summons us all. [Refrain]

4 When we hear words of hatred
spreading fear or false witness,
words that cry to be challenged,
Jesus summons us all. [Refrain]

5 In each moment of courage,
steadfast even through trembling;
in the yearning for justice,
Jesus summons us all. [Refrain]

6 Like disciples before us,
from the city or seashore,
risking selfless compassion:
Jesus summons us all. [Refrain]
