The Summons by John L. Bell

I heard this song, The Summons, at Christ The King today at Sunday mass. As my eyes followed the lyrics written in the hymn book, and my ears heard the music and my lips sang the song, God it seemed was answering me.

I am human. After 11 years in America experiencing apparently needless poverty and persecution, I wondered why. Afterall the three of us came in legally, well-educated, speaking fluent English, why? why? why?

The words of this song answered me as if God, Himself, had sung to me, His Summons. My answer now  – Heaven, yes!
