1 Listen to the “still, small voice,”
Soft as moon beams falling,
‘Tis the Holy Spirit speaks,
Gently, gently calling.

Hark! from heaven falling,
To thy soul now calling,
‘Tis a voice of mercy
Calls in love to thee.

2 Calling thee from self and sin,
And false, worldly pleasures,
To the life that’s “hid with Christ,”
To eternal treasures. [Refrain]

3 Calling thee to nobler aims,
And a true endeavor,
To a blessed fellowship
With Thy Lord forever. [Refrain]
