Description

This is a must-have CD for any LDS home, especially those with missionaries in the field or missionaries in the making. The music on Called to Serve celebrates the zeal and memories of missionary work and has a wonderful selection of church hymns and music that inspires and lifts in ways that few collections of songs can. From the stirring refrain of the title song—which heralds many missionaries as they start their service—to the tender submission to God's will in "I'll Go Where You Want Me to Go" to the fervor of "This Is the Christ" and "I Believe in Christ," this music imbues the heart with enthusiasm for God's work and hope for a brighter tomorrow. The songs clearly resonate with Latter-day Saints, and also appeal to a broader segment of believers who have a love of God and a desire to share that love with their neighbor. "Onward, ever onward... God our strength will be...Called to serve our king."
