Tune: Picardy - Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silence
God of mystery, always calling, in my heart your love has stirred,
calling me to follow humbly, and obey the voice I have heard,
giving you my all, my treasure, trusting in your gracious Word.
God of mystery, always calling, move my spirit as I pray.
Give me faith to change my living, paths I've followed all my days.
Stay my hand from ill, providing grace to walk in bless'd new ways.
God of mystery, always calling, still is Isaac bound in me?—
your Beloved, precious, but threatened by my old, unchecked piety?
New, life-giving ways reveal,
that your Child in me may be free.
