398. Jesus Calls Us

Text: Cecil Frances Alexander, 1818-1895
Music: William H. Jude
Tune: GALILEE, Meter: 87.87

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!" 

2.	As of old the apostles heard it 
	by the Galilean lake, 
	turned from home and toil and kindred, 
	leaving all for Jesus' 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, 
	Savior, may we hear thy call, 
	give our hearts to thine obedience, 
	serve and love thee best of all.
