Representative Text

1 I hear a voice; ‘tis calling me,
As long ago, by Galilee;
So Jesus calls to me today,
To follow Him, the Living Way.

He’s calling me, He’s calling me,
Jesus my Lord is calling me!
So will I now His grace implore,
To follow Him forevermore.

2 I hear a voice within my soul;
My Saviour seeks for full control,
To lead me on to “things above,”
To stronger faith, to purer love. [Refrain]

3 I hear a voice; a stirring call,
To do His will, whate’er befall;
That, leaving all, my life may be,
Used all for Him, in service free. [Refrain]
