I want to preach the Word 
They want massages 
I check chapter and verse 
They check their watches 

I spy another yawn 
I might as well be gone 
Let's stand and say "Amen" 
Some days I must admit 

I still don't get this 
Could be it's time to quit 
When days get like this 
I slip into the night 

Then stumble towards the light 
Wake up and try again 

[Chorus] 
When You called my name 
I didn't know how far the calling went 
When You called my name 
I didn't know what that word really meant 
When I recall Your call 
I feel 
So small 

Could be I'm losing touch 
Could be they don't care 
Lord knows I don't know much 
Lord knows I've been there 
I trip toward my retreat 
I fall down at Your feet 
Get up and try again 

[Chorus] 
 
Lord, what did you see 
When you called out for me? 

I start losing heart 
And then 
It comes again 
Lifted from despair 
By the prayers of someone 
Lifted form despair 
By the prayers of someone 

[Chorus]
