Author: Rev. Dr. F. Bottome Hymnal: Hymns of Consecration and Faith #236 (1902) Hymnal Title: Hymns of Consecration and Faith First Line: Oh, the voice of tender mercy Refrain First Line: He is calling,—"Come to me!" Lyrics: 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]
