1 Oh, hear the joyful message,
‘Tis sounding far and wide:
Good news of full salvation,
Thro’ Him, the Crucified!
God’s Word is truth eternal;
Its promise all may claim.
Who look by faith to Jesus,
And call upon His name.

“Whosoever calleth,
Whosoever calleth,
Whosoever calleth
on His name shall be saved!
Whosoever calleth,
Whosoever calleth,
Whosoever calleth
on the Lord shall be saved!”

2 Ye souls that long in darkness,
The path of sin have trod,
Behold the light of mercy!
Behold the Lamb of God!
With all your heart believe Him,
And now the promise claim—
That none shall ever perish
Who call upon His name. [Refrain]

3 Ye weary, heavy laden,
Oppressed with toil and care:
He waits to bid you welcome,
And all your burdens bear;
A precious gift He offers,
A gift that all may claim,
Who look to Him believing,
And call upon His name. [Refrain]
