Lyrics

The words of the Master are ringing,
Ringing in ears so long deaf to His call;
Their message of tenderness bringing,
Bringing salvation to one and all.

Refrain

Coming, I’m coming to Thee!
Coming, I’m coming to Thee!
From sin to be free, only Thine to be,
With gladness I’m coming to Thee.

The feet of the Master are showing
Showing the pathway to dwellings above;
Where we by our faith should be going,
Going, upheld by Christ’s boundless love.

Refrain

The life of the Master is pleading,
Pleading, is pleading with you and with me;
It shows me how much I am needing,
Needing the help that is found in Thee.
