O Lord, What a Vision: Call to Worship for All Saints Day

A 21st Century Worship Resource
by the Rev. Nathan Decker

I looked over Jordan, that river we all will eventually cross...
O Lord, what a vision.
I could see the saints singing and dancing.
I saw grandpa fishing in the Crystal Sea,
I heard grandma humming in the kitchen...
O Lord, what a vision.
There were countless others, all faithful disciples, gathered worshiping...
That old man who sang solos in the choir,
That young man whose life was cut short in that accident...
O Lord what a vision.
But the most amazing thing I saw as I looked over Jordan...
Yes? Yes?
Was the man standing in the shallows, smiling, saying
"Welcome home."
