Jesus Calls Us

Jesus Calls Us
words by Cecil Alexander

Jesus calls us over the tumult
Of our life’s wild, restless, sea;
Day by day His sweet voice soundeth,
Saying, “Christian, follow Me!”

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!”

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!”

Jesus calls us! By Thy mercies,
Savior may we hear Thy call,
Give our hearts to Thine obedience,
Serve and love Thee best of all.

"Come follow Me," Jesus said, "and I will make you fishers of men." ~Matthew 4:19

I love the words to this hymn, Kati, especially the last line of each verse. So many hymns are like prayers, aren't they? They inspire you to want to be still and say the words to Jesus.
