If I Have Two Coats (preview)

Biblical references: Luke 3:7-18
Tune: LYONS 10.10.11.11 (“O Worship the King, All Glorious Above!”)

If I have two coats, God calls me to share;
There’s someone nearby with no coat to wear.
And if I don’t know who that person might be,
It’s to a new friendship that God’s calling me.

If I have some bread — and soup, all the more —
I’m called to reach out to someone who’s poor.
And if I don’t know who that person might be,
It’s to a new table that God’s calling me.

If money is mine, God calls me to live
As someone who loves to generously give;
And if I don’t know someone suffering near me,
It’s to a new neighbor that God’s calling me.

O God of great truth, John’s call to obey
Prepared us for Christ, who shows us your Way.
May we have the courage to try something new,
To reach to new neighbors and so welcome you.
