Closing Hymn “Lord, You Have Come to the Lakeshore” Hymnal #721

Words and Music by Cesareo Gabarain

1)  Lord, you have come to the lakeshore looking neither for wealthy nor wise ones;

you only asked me to follow humbly.

Refrain: O Lord, with your eyes you have searched me, 

  and while smiling have spoken my name;

  now my boat’s left on the shoreline behind me. 

  By your side I will seek other seas.

2)  You know so well my possessions; my boat carries no gold and no weapons;

you will find there my nets and labor. Refrain

3)  You need my hands, full of caring, through my labors to give others rest

and constant love that keeps on loving. Refrain

4)  You, who have fished other oceans, ever longed for by souls who are waiting,

my loving friend, as thus you call me: Refrain

Benediction       Sarah Junkin Woodard
