1 Jesus found me wand'ring
Far from him astray;
Tenderly he led me
To the shining way;
Words of peace he whispered,
Bade my fears depart;
Oh, 'twas sweet to hear him
Whisp'ring in my heart.

Chorus:
Whisp'ring, whisp'ring,
O what joy is mine!
Whisp'ring, whisp'ring,
Words of love divine;
No strains of earthly music
Such rapture can impart;
I'm glad I ever heard him
Whisp'ring in my heart.

2 I can hear him whisper
When my soul is tried,
"Fear not, I am with thee,
I am at thy side."
When the foe assails me,
Jesus takes my part;
I rejoice to hear him
Whisp'ring in my heart. [Chorus]

3 Would you hear the Saviour's
Gentle voice within?
Now, while he is calling
Leave the path of sin;
Peace that passeth knowledge
Freely he'll impart;
You today may hear him
Whisp'ring in your heart. [Chorus]
