Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

The Voice of Jesus Calls His People

The voice of Jesus calls his people

Author: Joy F. Patterson (1993)
Tune: THE VOICE OF JESUS
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 The voice of Jesus calls his people,
"Come to my table and be fed!"
For those who come to him believing,
he is the Wine, he is the Bread.
All who are lost, or bear great burdens,
all who need comfort or release,
come where the presence of Christ Jesus
will nourish us with rest and peace.

2 Children and elders, mean and women,
whatever color, race or tongue,
in Jesus find themselves united,
in him a home where they belong.
We hear your loving voice, O Jesus,
we long, we hunger to be fed;
in joy we gather at the table
where you are Wine, and you are Bread.
