Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

My Savior's voice

Representative Text

1 I love to hear my Savior's voice--
The voice that stilled the sea,
Spoke peace unto my troubled heart,
And comfort gave to me.

I love to hear my Savior's voice.
No other shall I know;
It is the voice of One who died,
Because He loved me so.

2 I love to hear my Savior's voice--
The voice that healed the blind,
Brought light unto my sightless eyes,
And healing to my mind. [Chorus]

3 I love to hear my Savior's voice--
The voice that plead for me,
Beneath the shadow of the Cross,
In dark Gethsemane. [Chorus]

4 I love to hear my Savior's voice--
The voice death could not still
Shall raise, triumphant from the grave,
All those who do His will. [Chorus]
