1 Jesus calls me; I am going
Where He opens up my way,
To the toiling of His vineyard,
Shrinking not a single day.
Friends may shun me, toils await me,
Crucifixion be my lot;
But I’ve chosen Christ my Saviour,
I am going, call me not.

2 Jesus calls me; I am going
To the life he wills for me;
This poor world can’t fill the aching
Of my heart, or set it free.
O, what anxious, bitter sorrow
Does the world give with its strife;
But with Jesus,—O what glory!
Ending in eternal life.

3 Jesus calls me; I am going
To the washing of his blood,—
Healing now, and purifying
All who test the crimson flood;
Flesh may cry, now now,—tomorrow,—
Idols rise with wonted power;
Jesus, help me, come and help me!
Jesus take me hour by hour.

4 Jesus calls me; I am going
To the mansions all prepared,
These for thee, for all, says Jesus,
Who my pow’r hath here declared;
Knowing this complete Salvation,—
This that saves from inbred sin,
Why not tell to all around me,
Jesus can make wholly clean?

5 Jesus calls me; I am going;—
O that all would test with me,
All the power of Christ’s Salvation,
For the fountain’s full and free.
Test the grace so freely offered,
Know the worth of Christ within;
Rise and share the bliss transcendent—
Freedom from the power of sin.
