Verse 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 ?

Verse 2
As, of old, Apostles heard it
By the Galilean lake,
Turned from home and toil and kindred,
Leaving all for His dear sake.

Verse 3
Jesus calls us from the worship
Of the vain world's golden store,
From each idol that would keep us,
Saying; Christian, love Me more!

Verse 4
In our joys and in our sorrows,
Days of toil and hours of ease,
Still He calls, in cares and pleasures,
That we love Him more than these.

Verse 5
Jesus calls us! By Thy mercies,
Saviour, make us hear Thy call,
Give our hearts to Thine obedience,
Serve and love Thee best of all.
