Representative Text

1 Jesus is calling, lovingly calling,
Moments are wasting and the harvest is wide;
Many are waiting, many are idle,
Many are halting, and awaiting the tide.

Jesus is calling, so lovingly calling,
Enter the field, for there’s plenty to do,
Take up the cross, and, no longer delaying,
Enter the service, be valiant and true.

2 Jesus is calling, lovingly calling,
Gather the jewels that in plenty are found;
Tell the glad story, tell it with gladness,
Until the world shall with His glory resound. [Refrain]

3 Jesus is calling, patiently calling,
Enter the field, joyfully singing His love;
Comfort the weak ones, rescue the wand’rer,
Tell the glad story of the mansions above. [Refrain]
