60*. Hark! the Voice of Jesus Calling

8,7.
by A. Midlane
1
Hark! the voice of Jesus calling—
 
"Come, ye laden, come to Me;
 
I have rest and peace to offer,
 
Rest, thou laboring one, for thee:
 
Take salvation—
 
Take it now and happy be."
Matthew 11:28; 2 Corinthians 6:2
2
Yes; though high in heavenly glory,
 
Still the Saviour calls to thee;
 
Faith can hear His gracious accents—
 
"Come, ye laden, come to Me;
 
Take salvation—
 
Take it now and happy be."
Proverbs 16:20
3
Soon that voice will cease its calling,
 
Now it speaks, and speaks to thee:
 
Sinner, heed the gracious message—
 
To the blood for refuge flee:
 
"Take salvation—
 
Take it now and happy be."
Psalm 144:15
4
Life is found alone in Jesus,
 
Only there 'tis offered thee—
 
Offered without price or money,
 
'Tis the gift of God sent free,
 
"Take salvation—
 
Take it now and happy be."
Isaiah 55:1; Romans 6:23; Psalm 116:13; Psalm 32:1-2
“Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” (Matthew 11:28)
