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.

The Voice Within

I seem to hear a voice within

Representative Text

1. I seem to hear a voice within,
A friendly voice in accents low;
Which warns me that the ways of sin,
Lead down to endless death and woe.

It is the voice of love divine,
That utters thus a warning kind,
That whispers to this heart of mine,
Seek now, if mercy you would find.

2. Though all around seems bright and fair,
Yet deadly evil lurks within,
And if you still retain it there,
You'll surely perish in your sin.

3. Life's op'ning morn may smile to-day,
To-morrow gloomy death may call;
Yet now the Maker's voice obey,
Then shall death's summons ne'er appal.

4. Yes, go to Jesus, who was slain,
To ransom guilty ones from woe,
His blood can cleanse sin's every stain,
His friendship endless bliss bestow.

5. Seek while thy Father waits to bless,
Seek while the Saviour will forgive,
Seek while the Spirit, rich in grace,
Will help thee turn to God and live.
