Charles H. Gabriel (🔊 pdf nwc).

I’ll be a voice for the Master,
Speaking for Jesus today;
Guiding the souls He is seeking,
Into the beautiful way.

Refrain

I’ll be a voice! I’ll be a voice!
Teaching the truth and the way;
I’ll be a voice! I’ll be a voice!
Speaking for Jesus today.

I’ll be a voice to the wand’rer,
Though far away he may roam;
Telling love’s welcome is waiting,
Guiding the prodigal home.

Refrain

I’ll be a voice for the Master,
Unto the sad and oppressed;
Guiding the feet of the weary
Unto His haven of rest.

Refrain
