Is it nothing to you, all you who pass by? Look around and see. Is any suffering like My suffering that was inflicted on Me, that the Lord brought on Me in the day of His fierce anger?@Lamentations 1:12

Is it nothing to thee, is it nothing to thee,
That thy Lord and Redeemer His love hath revealed?
Is it nothing to thee, is it nothing to thee,
That He died on the cross and thy pardon sealed?
Oh, ’tis something to me, yes, ’tis something to me,
That the voice of His love still is calling today;
Oh, ’tis something to me, yes, ’tis something to me;
I will hear from my heart and with joy obey.

Refrain

Come, come, come, He’s calling today,
Haste, haste, haste, no longer delay,
List, list, Jesus is calling thee now,
Come, come, before Him now.

Is it nothing to thee, is it nothing to thee,
That thy sin laden feet from the Savior hath turned?
Is it nothing to thee, is it nothing to thee,
That the voice of His mercy thy heart hath spurned?
Oh, ’tis something to me, yes, ’tis something to me,
That He calleth me back, wheresoever I roam,
Oh, ’tis something to me, yes, ’tis something to me,
That I still may return and be welcomed home.

Refrain

Is it nothing to thee, is it nothing to thee,
That eternity cometh and death draweth near?
Is it nothing to thee, is it nothing to thee?
Canst thou go when He calleth, without a fear?
Oh, ’tis something to me, yes, ’tis something to me,
When at last I shall stand on eternity’s shore,
Oh, ’tis something to me, yes, ’tis something to me,
To be holy and happy forevermore.

Refrain
