Representative Text

1 Hark! there comes a whisper
Stealing on thine ear;
'Tis the Saviour calling,
Soft, soft and clear.


Give thy heart to me,
Once I died for thee;
Hark! hark! thy Saviour calls,
Come, sinner, come.

2 With that voice so gentle,
Dost thou hear Him say,
Tell me all Thy sorrows,
Come, come away. [Refrain]

3 Wouldst thou find a refuge
For thy soul oppress'd?
Jesus kindly answer,
I am thy rest. [Refrain]

4 At the cross of Jesus
Let thy burden fall,
While He gently whispers,
I'll bear it all. [Refrain]
