1 Jesus is calling, O heed His voice,
Tenderly pleading with thee, O soul;
“Come unto me, I will give thee rest,
Free thee from sorrow and make thee whole.”

Refrain:
Calling, calling,
Jesus is tenderly calling:
“Come unto me,”
Jesus is calling today.

2 Jesus is calling, O heed His voice,
“Weary one come, I will share thy grief;
Wander no longer in sin astray,
I will sustain thee, give thee relief.” [Refrain]

3 Jesus is calling, O heed His voice,
O soul, send thy Lord away?
Come to Him now ere it be too late;
Come to the Saviour, O come today. [Refrain]
