When I Call

Let's jump back into Lyric Tuesday.

Please take note: When I die, I want "When I Call on Jesus" at my funeral. Morbid thought, I know. Yet, this song speaks to me on a very deep level. I know several Christian artists have their own versions of "When I Call...". I don't know who made the first version. Nicole C. Mullen definitely has my favorite version. She is phenomenal!

"When I Call On Jesus"

I'm so very ordinary, nothing special on my own.
Oh, I have never walked on water,
And I have never calmed a storm.
Sometimes I'm hiding away from the madness around me
Like a child who's afraid of the dark

But when I call on Jesus,
All things are possible
I can mount on wings like eagles' and soar
When I call on Jesus,
Mountains are gonna fall
'Cause He'll move heaven and earth to come rescue me when I call

La la la la la, la la la la la

Weary brother, broken daughter,
Widowed, Widowed lover you're not alone
If you're tired and scared of the madness around you
If you can't find the strength to carry on


Call Him in the mornin', in the afternoon time
Late in the evenin' He'll be there
When your heart is broken,
And you feel discouraged,
You can just remember that He said
He'll be there

Chorus (2x)

La la la la la, la la la la la, la la la la la-a-a
