Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Come, our Father's voice is calling

Come, our Father's voice is calling

Author: L. Tuttiett
Tune: OUR FATHER'S VOICE
Published in 5 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Come! our Father's voice is calling,
One by one His children dear;
He will raise the weak, the falling,
He the fainting heart will cheer.

2 Come! our Shepherd waits to lead us,
He who once for sinners died,
Where the Bread of Heaven will feed us,
Where the living streams abide.

3 Come! the Spirit now will seal us,
Heirs of God for evermore;
Strong to help, and kind to heal us,
When our souls are weak and sore.

4 Come! our King Himself will arm us,
For the fight we must endure;
'Neath His shield, when foes alarm us,
He will keep our life secure.

5 Come! the Cross, our banner glorious,
Onward guides the host of God;
We may march, in hope victorious,
By the path our Saviour trod.

Amen.
