Representative Text

1 There is a voice that’s soft and low,
Oft whisp’ring in my ear;
It is the Savior’s gentle voice,
My heart so loves to hear;
I learned to love it long ago,
When first I heard its call;
Its earnest pleading I obeyed,
And gave to him my all.

Refrain:
There is a voice so sweet,
Softly mine ear doth greet;
Jesus, my Savior, whis’ring his love
From that bright home above.

2 There is no sound for mortal ear
That can with it compare;
No angel harp hath such a chord,
‘Tis music rich and rare;
Whene’er I wait with breaking heart,
To listen for its sound,
It always comes to comfort me,
And binds up ev’ry wound. [Refrain]

3 O how it makes my heart rejoice,
To think of yon bright land,
Where I shall clearly hear his voice,
And feel his gentle hand!
‘Tis blest communion here below
Thro’ Faith’s imperfect ear;
But there where all perfection dwells,
His voice I’ll always hear. [Refrain]
