1 Say, what mean thy tears that start,
Weary child with broken heart?
Lift thine eye! O look and see—
’Tis the Savior calling thee.

He is calling,
He is calling, calling thee,
Lift thine eyes! O look and see,
’Tis the Savior calling thee!
He is calling,
He is calling, calling thee,
’Tis the Savior calling, calling, calling thee.

2 He has called and sought thee long;
Leave the gay and careless throng;
Why delay His own to be,
When He still is calling thee? [Chorus]

3 Dost thou on His name believe?
Pard’ning grace wouldst thou receive?
Plead with Him on bended knee—
Love divine is calling thee. [Chorus]

4 At the cross where once He died,
At the fount He opened wide,
Seek and find salvation free,
While He now is calling thee! [Chorus]
