There's a voice that speaks

Representative Text

1 There’s a voice that speaks today,
To the child in error’s way;
And in pity heart it say,
Come unto me,
I will give you peace and rest,
All ye weary and oppressed,
If you’ll only be my guest,
Come unto me.

Come unto me,
Come unto me,
Hear the Savior sweetly say,
Come unto me,
Come unto me
Come unto me
Hear the Savior sweetly say,
Come unto me.

2 You who’ve wandered long in sin,
And a new life would begin,
Hear that voice that speaks within,
Come unto me,
Shining ones in heaven wait,
Close beside the pearly gate,
Now to see you heed, tho’ late,
Come unto me. [Refrain]

3 Hear him calling you who roam,
Still entreating you to come;
If you’d find sweet rest at home,
Come unto me,
Will you worldly things resign,
Saying, Jesus shall be mine?
Will you heed his call divine,
Come unto me. [Refrain]
