484. I Hear Thy Welcome Voice

1 I hear thy welcome voice
that calls me, Lord to thee
for cleansing in thy precious blood
that flowed on Calvary.

Refrain:
I am coming, Lord,
coming now to thee:
wash me, cleanse me, in the blood
that flowed on Calvary.

2 Though I come weak and vile,
thou dost my strength assure;
thou dost my vileness fully cleanse,
till spotless all and pure. [Refrain]

3 'Tis Jesus calls me on
to perfect faith and love,
to perfect hope, and peace, and trust,
for earth and heav'n above. [Refrain]

4 'Tis Jesus who confirms
the blessed work within,
by adding grace to welcomed grace,
where reigned the pow'r of sin. [Refrain]

5 And he the witness gives
to loyal hearts and free,
that ev'ry promise is fulfilled,
if faith but brings the plea. [Refrain]
