1 When the storm is raging and the heart is sad,
Listen for the whispers of Jesus;
Surely you will hear them and they’ll make you glad,
Listen for the whispers of Jesus.

Refrain:
Listen! Listen!
Listen for the whispers of Jesus!
Surely you will hear them and they’ll make you glad.
Listen for the whispers of Jesus!

2 When beneath a burden you are bending low,
Listen for the whispers of Jesus;
When your friends forsake you and the sad tears flow,
Listen for the whispers of Jesus. [Refrain]

3 When the night seems endless, when for courage pressed,
Listen for the whispers of Jesus;
When the soul is weary and you sigh for rest,
Listen for the whispers of Jesus. [Refrain]
