1151. When You Hear His Voice

1 On the mountain of sin you have wandered away,
Storm and tempest about you beat;
You have struggled alone through the deep miry clay,
Sharp rocks have bruised your weary feet.

Refrain:
You may enter the Shepherd’s fold,
You may make its peace and comfort your choice,
Safe forever from storm and cold,
If you follow when you hear His voice.

2 Quickly answer the Lord who is seeking for you,
Go to meet Him with thankful heart;
Follow Him to your home, as He bids you to do.
And from its shelter ne’er depart. [Refrain]

3 Thro’ the darkness of night, He is calling to you,
He who knows all His sheep by name;
Tho’ your sins have been great, and your merits are few,
His love will ever be the same. [Refrain]
