​When He Calls

This song is by Ray Boltz and appears on the album Thank You (1988).

In a land far away
A little boy lay
Asleep in his bed
Then he heard a voice call
There was no doubt at all
He knew just what it said

He had heard it before
And he could not ignore
What he thought was too good to be true
For the words of a wise man
Had opened his eyes
And he knew what he needed to do

When he calls
When he calls
Just say Lord I am listening
When he calls
WHen he calls
Just be ready to obey
For there's no greater joy
Than hearing him call... your name

Well the little boy's gone
But life still goes on
Day after day
ANd if God spoke back then
He can do it again
In a nuclear age

Have you heard it before
ANd just cose to ignore
WHat your mind thought was only a dream
That is what you should do
ANd it's not quite as strange as it seems

When he calls
When he calls
Just say Lord I am listening
When he calls
When he calls
Just to be ready to obey
FOr there's no greater joy
Than hearing Him call... your name
