236. The Voice of Jesus

1 Oh, the voice of tender mercy,
Clear and full above the strife;
It is Jesus passing by me,
Hark! He speaks the word of life.

He is calling,—”Come to me!”
Lord, I gladly haste to Thee.

2 At His touch are sight and healing,
At His word the dead arise;
When He speaks, Himself revealing,
Ev’ry doubt before Him flies. [Chorus]

3 Lamb of God, His blood atoneth,—
He the perfect sacrifice;
Not a sin my soul bemoaneth,
But before His presence dies. [Chorus]

4 Son of God, He ever liveth,
Saves me to the uttermost!
And in Him my soul receiveth
Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. [Chorus]

5 Blessèd sense of heaven within me,
Blessèd consciousness of love;
Blessèd resurrection glory,
Raised to sit with Christ above. [Chorus]

6 Oh the fulness of salvation!
Oh the broadness of His grace!
Oh the rapturous exaltation!
Oh the smiling of His face! [Chorus]
