It Is Jesus Who Called Me

Story

This was written at a very tough time; I think the song tells the story.  It was Gene's idea to give it a more rootsy feel and Ellen's vocal is my favorite part of the CD.

Lyrics

I’ve seen trouble, I’ve had some pain

I’ve seen some bad times, they’re coming ‘round again

Had my share of hurting, places I’ve been

I’m calling out to Jesus come rescue me again

 

Some people claim they’ve got it bad

Can’t understand all the trouble that they’ve had

Well I’ve been cut down so low but I’ve got a friend

And when I call on Jesus He sees me through the end

 

It is Jesus who called me it is Him I received

He will not let me travel life alone

It is Jesus who called me and I know I can believe

He will lead me safely ‘till he calls me home

 

Some people say, hey you’ve got to be strong

No matter what happens you just keep on pushing on

Well that may be fine but you know people are weak

You can push all you want, it’s Him I will seek

 

It is Jesus who called me it is Him I received

He will not let me travel life alone

It is Jesus who called me and I know I can believe

He will lead me safely ‘till he calls me home

 

The world can hurt me, my friends can all leave

But there’s nothing that can take His love away

So no matter what happens, this I believe

He is faithful to guide me through my days

 

It is Jesus who called me it is Him I received

He will not let me travel life alone

It is Jesus who called me and I know I can believe

He will lead me safely ‘till he calls me home
