1 Jesus calls us; o'er the tumult
of our life's wild, restless sea,
day by day I hear Him saying,
""Christian, come and follow me.""
2 As, of old, disciples heard it
By the Galilean lake,
Turned from home and work and leisure,
Leaving all for His dear sake:
4 In our joys and in our sorrows,
days of toil and hours of ease,
still he calls in cares and pleasures,
""Christian, love me more than these.""
5 Jesus calls us; by Thy mercies,
Savior, may we hear Thy call,
give our hearts to Thine obedience,
serve and love Thee best of all.
