295. Hark! the Voice of Jesus Calling

8.7.
1
Hark! the voice of Jesus calling—
 
"Come, ye children, come to Me;
 
I have rest and peace to offer,
 
Rest, dear children, now for thee."
 
"Take salvation, take salvation,
 
Take it now and happy be."
2
Yes; though high in heavenly glory,
 
Still the Saviour calls to thee:
 
Faith can hear His gracious accents—
 
"Come, dear children, come to Me."
3
Soon that voice will cease its calling,
 
Now it speaks, and speaks to thee:
 
Children, heed the gracious message—
 
To the blood for refuge flee:
4
Life is found alone in Jesus,
 
Only there 'tis offered thee—
 
Offered without price or money,
 
'Tis the gift of God sent free.
