Representative Text

1 Hear the gentle voice of Jesus,
How its tender accents fall!
“I would be thy Guide and Shepherd,
Find in me thine all in all.”

Lord of life, Thy condescension
Fills my grateful heart with praise!
I would joyfully receive Thee,
Love Thee, serve Thee, all my days!

2 “Hast thou faith, O my beloved?
All is thine if thou believe!
Unto death O be thou faithful,
And a crown of life receive.” [Refrain]

3 Hearest thou the Master calling,
“Wherefore idle all the day?
In my vineyard gladly labor,
What is right I will repay.” [Refrain]

4 Be not like the barren fig-tree,
Be a branch of living vine;
Soon will come the heav’nly harvest,
When forever thou shalt shine. [Refrain]
