    Wink call on me?

    Hi

    What does " call on someone" means?
    what does it mean in this lyric:
    When you call on me / When I hear you / I get wings to fly / I feel that I'm alive /

    Thank you

    There are two main meanings that I can think of:

    To visit someone:

    My friends and I went to call on my aunt yesterday.

    To invite/ask someone (to do something):

    I would like to call on the next speaker to take his place on the stage.
    I'm going to have to call on the whole team to help me with this project.
