Hymn 324Play music
1 Jesus calls us! O'er the tumult
O four life's wild restless sea
Day by day his sweet voice soundeth,
Saying, 'Christian, follow me.'
2 As ofold apostles heard it
By the Galilean lake,
Turned from home and toil and kindred,
Leaving all for his dear sake.
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.'
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,
Saviour, may we hear thy call,
Give our hearts to thy obedience,
Serve and love thee best of all.
