1 Jesus calls us, o'er the tumult
Of our life's wild, restless sea;
Day by day His sweet voice soundeth
Saying, ""Christian, follow Me;""
2 As of old, apostles heard it
By the Galilean lake,
Turned from home and work and family,
Leaving all for His dear sake.
3 In our joys and in our sorrows,
Day of toil and hours of ease,
Still He calls, in cares and pleasures,
""Christian, love Me more.""
4 Jesus calls us: by Thy mercies,
Savior, may we hear your call,
Give our hearts to your obedience,
Serve and love you best of all.
