1 Something whispers in my soul:
Let the Saviour take control,
Only he can make me whole,
Jesus bled and died for me.

Something whispers can it be,
There is hope for one like me,
I will seek His mercy full and free,
Jesus bled and died for me.

2 As the night from dawning day,
So my fears will flee away,
When my happy heart can say,
Jesus bled and died for me. [Refrain]

3 Led by love’s constraining call,
I will yield to Him my all;
Singing till life’s eventide,
Jesus bled and died for me. [Refrain]

4 When, amid the ransom’d throng,
I shall join the happy song,
Which eternal years prolong,
Jesus bled and died for me. [Refrain]
