1 Sometimes the shadows o’er me fall,
I grope in vain a light to see,
When in my heart a voice doth day—
O troubled one, come unto me.

I hear His voice, and to Him go,
And find in Him a Friend indeed,
Could I refuse His tender plea,
No, no, ‘tis Him alone I need.

2 The voice still pleads in accents low,
But still I linger—O so weak—
Can I resist that voice so sweet?
No, no, ‘tis peace and rest I seek. [Refrain]

3 So I will gladly heed His call,
And let Him with me ever stay,
For He alone can give me life,
And Light my heav’nly way. [Refrain]
