Called to the Table

Called to the table,
   unworthy every one,
       murderers and thieves,
           liars and cheaters,
               selfish and jealous,
                   worrisome and doubting
                        and fearful and unfaithful,

Made worthy by His call,
     to be sent forth, now just
          the young and old,
               men and women,
                    weak and strong,
                         rich and poor,
                              and sick and well,

His call to me and you.*

"Go into the whole world and proclaim
the gospel to every living creature"
(Mark 16:15). Jesus calls the unworthy
and makes them worthy, he sends forth
the weak and makes them strong. And
the apostles obeyed: "They went forth
and preached everywhere" (John 16:20).
