295. Hark! the Voice of Jesus Calling

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."
Yes; though high in heavenly glory,
Still the Savior calls to thee:
Faith can hear His gracious accents—
"Come, dear children, come to Me."
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:
Life is found alone in Jesus,
Only there 'tis offered thee—
Offered without price or money,
'Tis the gift of God sent free.
