1 In the midnight silent watches,
What a wondrous voice I hear!
Charming accents, sweet and tender,
Music-like salute mine ear.

Calling, gently calling,
Wondrous accents, sweet and mild,
Calling, for He loves me;
He loves a little child.

2 Bless├Ęd Lord, O great Creator,
How I wonder, can it be?
He that built the starry mansion,
Doth regard a child like me. [Refrain]

3 There again I hear Thee calling,
In such tender accents near;
Here am I! oh, yes, I listen;
Speak, and I will gladly hear. [Refrain]

4 Speak, O Lord, Thy servant heareth;
Help Thou me to understand;
Here I wait to do Thy errands,
And obey, Lord, Thy command. [Refrain]
