Representative Text

1 My Saviour’s voice is sweet to me,
I love to hear it more and more;
He speaketh, low and tenderly,
Sweet words of comfort o’er and o’er.

Refrain:
He speaks, and list’ning to His voice,
Sweet peace doth all my spirit fill;
And in His goodness I rejoice,
When He doth whisper “Peace, be still.”

2 To Him whene’er I, grieving, go,
And tell the troubles of the day,
He speaks in accents soft and low,
And all my tears are wiped away. [Refrain]

3 When at the throne in prayer I kneel,
And seek to find from sin release,
What joy unspeakable I feel
When Jesus whispers “Go in peace.” [Refrain]

4 New pow’r and life His words impart,
And cleanse from ev’ry stain of sin;
They fill with light the darkened heart
That lets the Holy Spirit in. [Refrain]

5 Oh, listen to that Voice divine,
And yield to His persuasive love;
So shall His peace and joy be thine,
And countless blessings from above. [Refrain]
