We Will Go, September 16, 2006
Words and Music by Leah Van Maaren

Written for Laity Sunday 2006 at Sully First Reformed Church

I apologize for this recording - it's very hard on the ears. Also, imagine the 'whistle' as a violin or flute. This is the first song I've ever been asked to write for a specific occassion. I was called on a Wednesday with the idea, and by Thursday afternoon I proudly called them back and said, "I've got your song, and it's done!" I was amazed how quickly the melody and the words flowed when I sat down to work on it.

For the first time I had to write with a singing congregation in mind, and one that is used to more hymn-like structures, melodies, and rhythms. A four-part hymn sheet is available for congregational use, as well as a piano accompaniment and guitar part.

VERSE 1:
We will go where e'er you call us
In your hand we will not fall
Lead our lives as you have promised
As we work across this land

CHORUS:
We will go, we will go
Gladly Father, we will go
Trusting in your awesome presence
Gladly Father, we will go

VERSE 2:
When you call us, we will answer
Near or far, we'll follow you
In our homes or far away lands
This is what we're made to do

[CHORUS]

VERSE 3:
Guide us, teach us by your Spirit
Knowing what you say is right
Fill us with your Holy Presence
Lead us onward to the light

[CHORUS]

VERSE 4:
Walk us through the lonesome moments
Carry us in joyful song
As one Body, joined together
Fellowship both true and strong

[CHORUS]
