Africa Calling



And it’s for you I cry
My African skies!
With a thousand dreams
And a thousand sighs.

A thousand sunrises
I’ve yet to see;
Or a thousand sunsets
Forever calling to me.

Still, one thousand moons
Will never be-
Enough o’ Lord
Until you give Africa to me!

Give me Africa!
I’ll set her free,
And then sweet Lord,
Present her back to Thee.

I see Africa rising up strong
Taking her place where she belongs.
The African Pearl, and the African star
I hear them calling to me from afar.

“Come over here and help us to see
Come and show us what we can be!
Come with a Mother’s heart
To give Love, teach, strengthen and impart.”

African sun burning so bright
Pales in the Glory of God’s “sonlight.”
African Love, with passion strong
Holy Spirit lead me now where I belong.
  
Sons, yes, I have a many!
Daughters, not a few-
So many yet calling, I don’t know what to do-
Lord, my eyes are upon You!

Great is the harvest
Great is the Call
Coming to one who
Is “least of all.”

But my heart says, “Yes Lord!”
Here am I, send me…
I’ll arise and answer your question and call-
“Who can I send, who will go for Me?”

Take and send me on the current of Your Love
Guide me with Your Light from Above.
Fill me with your Power and Spirit energy
But may I always have child like Faith in Thee!

Give me Your Wisdom, wit and Way
Teach me to Mark carefully
 All that I do and say

Leading wisely, leading well
Lord, always serving
Living Water  from
Your bottomless well.

And now Lord, I thank You
That You hear my cry
May it pierce men’s hearts
Under the African sky.

In Jesus Name.  Amen.

Wow! Deep & Passionate; Clear & Vehement; Strong & Concise!
May the Lord hear your cry
May He do according to your heart
His mission shall prosper in your hands for He will strengthen you for the great work.
Africa shall be saved; the people shall be free indeed!
