Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

My Savior's Voice

Representative Text

1 Like music, floating on the evening air;
Like vespers, ringing out the hour of prayer;
Like echoes, answ'ring round me ev'rywhere,
My Savior's voice falls on my ear.

1 He speaks, and darkness changes into day;
he speaks, and all my sorrows flee away;
He speaks, and in my soul I hear Him say:
"I died for thee, O come to Me!"

2 As when it rose above the angry sea;
As it in love commanded: "Follow Me!"
As when it plead in dark Gethsemane,
My Savior's voice falls on my ear. [Refrain]

3 As when it spake the dead to life again;
As to the sleeping ones He called in vain;
And as it rang with His expiring pain,
My Savior's voice falls on my ear. [Refrain]

4 When earthly cares and sorrows all are past,
And at His feet my golden sheaves I cast,
I'll sing His praise forever, when at last
My Savior's voice falls on my ear. [Refrain]
