When we fill our minds with garbage
From the tubes and profs and books
It's no wonder we hate others
When they give us dirty looks
When we spend our days connivin'
How to satisfy our greed
It's no wonder we feel clammy
When we see the Saviour bleed

Call on the name of Jesus
Fall upon your knees
Call sin sin, call Him friend
Call on His holy name, oh oh

When we come upon a Tuesday
There's enough for us to do
Yet we spend the day complainin'
Come on Wednesday, where are you?
When we spend our lives tomorrow
And we hope the sun won't rise
It's no wonder we're ashamed
To look into the Saviour's eyes

Call on the name of Jesus
Fall upon your knees
Call sin sin, call Him friend
Call on His holy name

When we truly have ambitions
And they truly turn to dust
It's no wonder we feel frightened
When we have no one to trust
When we have no lasting value
And we reckon they got lost
It's no wonder we're ashamed
To see the Saviour on the cross

Call on the name of Jesus
Fall upon your knees
Call sin sin, call Him friend
Call on His holy name
