Representative Text

1 Soul! soul! on life’s journey pressing
Swiftly on from day to day;
List! list! to the Lord’s entreating,
Walk thou in the narrow way.

Will you follow where He leads?
Hear the call, gentle call;
Hear the blessèd invitation,
Yet He calls, Jesus calls!

2 Long! long! you have lonely wandered,
Knowing not the Father’s love;
Still! still! in His boundless mercy,
He doth beckon thee above. [Refrain]

3 Flee! flee! ere the storm clouds lower,
To the shelter of His breast;
Safe! safe! from the pow’r of evil
You for evermore shall rest! [Refrain]

4 Cling! cling! in thy weakness ever,
Close to Jesus’ bleeding side;
Trust! trust! in His pow’r to strengthen,
Cling to Him whate’er betide. [Refrain]
