Representative Text

1 Wandering far from the Father’s home,
Leaving the light in the dark to roam,
Hark to the voice that is calling!
Into the night where there shines no star,
Why do you wander so far, so far?
Hark to the voice that is calling!

Refrain:
Calling, calling, turn not away!
Listen, listen, He calls today!
Turn and follow, while yet you may;
Jesus is calling you!

2 What will you find in that country far?
Bitter the fruits of its pleasures are;
Hark to the voice that is calling!
“Come and return” is the tender plea,
“Ye that are weary, return to Me”;
Hark to the voice that is calling! [Refrain]

3 Bright is the path to eternal day,
Safe is the pilgrim along the way;
Hark to the voice that is calling!
Into the glory of light and love,
Follow the Master who waits above;
Hark to the voice that is calling! [Refrain]
