1 Do you know that Christ is list'ning?
Does he hear your accents clear?
Do you always witness for him,
Tell to others far and near
All the joys of his salvation,
All the rapture of his love?
Let him hear your loving utt'rance,
He is leaning from above!
Are you witnessing for Jesus,
Glad to speak a loving word?
List'ning, longing souls surround you,
That dear story have they heard?
2 Once he sought you in his pity,
You were far outside the fold;
Oh, his love was deep and tender,
Have you often the story told?
In the wilderness so lonely,
Jesus heard your feeble cry;
Brought you home to life and gladness,
Do you ever testify? [Chorus]
3 There are others in the desert,
Seek them now and tell of him,
Of his patience and forbearance
When you wandered far from him;
Tell them of the peace and shelter
Offered to each homeless one;
For if you refuse to tell them,
How can they to Christ be won? [Chorus]
4 Does no sound e'er break the stillness?
Does he know his child is dumb?
Do not grieve him by your silence
As the moments go and come!
Thro' the swiftly flying moments
He is list'ning from his throne;
Be a true and faithful witness,
Speak in eager, joyous tone. [Chorus]
