A bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is My belovèd Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye Him.@Matthew 17:5

While the Shepherd is calling,
O Lamb gone astray,
To the sheltering fold return;
Hear ye Him, and the wonderful summons obey,
Nor the joy of salvation spurn!

Refrain

Hear ye Him, hear ye Him,
He is calling you, wayward one;
Hear ye Him, hear ye Him,
Christ, the Father’s belovèd Son.

Hear ye Him, is the Father’s entreaty divine,
To each pilgrim who journeys here;
O believe His sweet message, sin’s folly resign,
And accept Him with love sincere!

Refrain

He is bidding you now to the harvest so white,
There to gather the fallen grain;
Hear ye Him, and with reapers of courage unite,
And bright sheaves for His kingdom gain.

Refrain

When the tempest is raging and dark is the night,
Still the Savior is kindly near;
Hear ye Him, as He murmurs, Fear not, I’m the light,
And to safety your bark will steer.

Refrain
