1 There's a gentle voice within calls away,
'Tis a warning I have heard o'er and o'er;
But my heart is melted now, I obey;
From my Saviour I will wander more.

Chorus:
Yes, I will go, yes, I will go,
To Jesus I will go and be saved.
Yes, I will go, yes, I will go,
To Jesus I will go and be saved.

2 He has promised all my sins to forgive,
If I ask in simple faith for his love;
In his holy word I learn how to live,
And to labor for his kingdom above.
[Chorus]

3 I will try to bear the cross in my youth
And be faithful to its cause till I die;
If with cheerful step I walk in the truth,
I shall wear a starry crown by and by.
[Chorus]

4 Still the gentle voice within calls away,
And its warning I have heard o'er and o'er;
But my heart is melted now, I obey;
From my Saviour I will wander no more.
[Chorus]
