Representative Text

1 The voice of the Spirit is wooing,
It comes when the clouds draw near;
It breathes in the heart’s soft sighing,
And rests on the falling tear.

Refrain:
The sweet, low voice of the Spirit
That Jesus left for us all,
Is leading us on to love him,
Oh, heed his gracious call;
Now calling, calling, tenderly calling;
Tenderly calling to you;
Still calling, calling, tenderly calling,
Calling in love to you.

2 The voice of the Spirit is mighty,
And breaks thro’ the chains of sin;
It comes when life’s storms are heavy,
When fierce waves are rolling in. [Refrain]

3 The voice of the Spirit is tender,
And lovingly comes to woo;
Then open your heart; he’ll enter,
He’s calling in love to you. [Refrain]
