Representative Text

1 Lo! the voice of Jesus
Fondly speaks to all;
He it is Who frees us
From sin's bitter thrall;
He it is Whose nature,
Human as our own,
Pleads for every creature
By the Father's throne.

2 Lo! the voice of Jesus,
Heard within the breast,
Tells us He will ease us,
Howso'er distressed:
Tells us that our sorrow
For the night may last,
But a glad to-morrow
Breaks upon us fast.

3 Lo! the voice of Jesus
Bids us still endure:
Seek not what will please us,
But things just and pure;
Strive through self-denial
Upwards to the light,
Where faith's years of trial
Shall be lost in sight.
