Lyrics

Do you hear the Savior calling,
By the wooings of His voice?
Do you hear the accents falling?
Will you make the precious choice?

Refrain

Are you listening? Are you listening?
Now, to hear the accents fall?
Are you listening? Are you listening
To the Savior’s gentle call?

By the word of truth He’s speaking
To the wandering, erring ones;
List! the voice the stillness breaking!
Hear the sweet and solemn tones!

Refrain

In His providential dealings,
Even in His stern decrees,
In the loudest thunders pealing,
Or the murm’ring of the breeze.
