about

Called to Love
I wrote this song to remind myself of what I am for rather than what I am against.To be called to love is a very hard calling. It’s a call to non-violence and creative problem solving fueled by strength and wisdom. Part of the text is from one of Dr. King’s beautiful and poetic speeches.
I tested this song out at the Women’s March on Washington (in Heidelberg) and had the crowd singing along – you hear it in the song!

lyrics

CALLED TO LOVE
I am called to love, this I need to be reminded of,
I wanna be strong, I wanna be wise
to know how to turn from the hatred of our times

I am called to love, I’m called to love you

And if you give back hate, tell you what I’m gonna do
don’t wanna step on down and play the fool
No, I’ll keep my head up high, look you right in the eye.
I want you to know that you are loved for love is my battle cry!

I am called to love, I’m called to love you

“Let’s stop this cycle of violent devastation,
and transform the jangling discord of our nation
and the world into a beautiful symphony of brotherhood” 1 in reconciliation for the greater good

We are called to love

“Love is understanding, creative, redemptive and good will for all men. Let justice roll down like waters and righteousness like a mighty stream.”

I am called to love, I’m called to love you
