1 Hark! the voice of Jesus, pleading
From the Cross of Calvary;
Scourged and pierced, His body bleeding,
“Why hast thou forsaken me?”
All alone the wine-press treading,
Jesus died for you and me;
Wrath of God, on Him descending,
He, our ransom, sets us free.

He is pleading, He is praying,
From the cross of Calvary,
That His sacrifice may save you,
Heed His voice, He’ll set you free.

2 Hark the voice of Jesus, praying
“Father, pity and forgive!”
He has giv’n His life to save you,
Dying sinner, look and live;
He has poured a full libation,
From His wounded hands and side,
Sacrifice for free salvation,
Flows for all, in crimson tide. [Refrain]

3 Heed the voice of Jesus, saying
“It is finished”—all may live;
Still He’s pleading, He is praying,
That the Father may forgive;
Jesus’ voice, from Calv’ry sounding,
Down the ages, offers free,
Pardon, peace, and life abounding,
Take the gift He offers thee. [Refrain]
