Representative Text

1 Oh, sweet is the voice of my Savior,
With accents of tenderest love;
Now calling His dear little children
To come to His mansions above.

Oh, come while the Savior is calling,
So tenderly pleading—Oh, come!
Be saved from your sins, and forever
Abide in His heavenly home.

2 He opens His arms to receive them,
With blessing and pardon of sin;
He washes away their transgressions,
And welcomes the little ones in. [Refrain]

3 Oh, listen to Jesus, your Savior,
His life for your ransom He gave;
He calls you to come to His kingdom,
To day He is waiting to save. [Refrain]

4 Oh, Spirit, still strive with the children!
Oh, Savior, still call them to Thee!
O children, believe now in Jesus,
For you His salvation is free. [Refrain]
