Representative Text

1 Jesus my Saviour,
Whisper to me,
Tell me of mercy,
Boundless and free;
Mercy that sought me
Thro’ the dark night,
Wondrously brought me
To walk in the light.

Refrain:
Blessed communion!
Leaning on Thee;
Jesus my Saviour,
Oh, whisper to me.

2 Jesus my Saviour,
Whisper to me,
Tenderly draw me
Nearer to Thee;
Oh, let Thy Spirit,
Heavenly Dove,
Dwelling within me,
Reveal Thy great love. [Refrain]

3 Jesus my Saviour,
Whisper to me,
Tell me of mansions
Over the sea;
There blessed voices
Joyfully blend,
There shall I praise Thee,
Where songs never end. [Refrain]
