Representative Text

1 A voice came to me out of silence,
In tenderness passing belief;
And wonderful words, sweet with comfort,
It bro’t to my soul in its grief,
It bro’t to my soul in its grief.

Refrain:
“For thee I was chastened,
For thee was denied;
For thee was rejected,
For thee crucified.
I carried thy burden,
I suffered for thee,
I died to redeem thee,
I died to redeem thee,
I died to redeem thee,
O come unto Me.”

2 As gentle and soft as a whisper
It fell in the darkness of night;
And when I had answered, above me
Descended a halo of light,
Descended a halo of light. [Refrain]

3 ‘Twas Jesus of Calvary speaking,
‘Twas He, my Redeemer, my King;
He spoke, and I could not refuse Him;
He came my salvation to bring,
He came my salvation to bring. [Refrain]
