Scripture Verse

If ye will hear His voice, harden not your hearts. Hebrews 4:7


Fanny Crosby (1820–1915)

Words: Fan­ny Cros­by, in Gos­pel Hymns No. 4, 1883.

Music: George C. Steb­bins (🔊 pdf nwc, male voices). Steb­bins said he wrote the mu­sic …with the view of mak­ing the song av­ail­able as an in­vi­ta­tion hymn; but that it would meet with in­stant fa­vor, and in a few years would be­come ge­ne­ral­ly known, did not en­ter my mind.

George C. Stebbins (1846–1945)


Jesus is ten­der­ly call­ing you home
Calling to­day, call­ing today,
Why from the sun­shine of love will you roam,
Farther and far­ther away?


Calling to­day, call­ing to­day,
Jesus is call­ing, is ten­der­ly call­ing to­day.

Jesus is call­ing the wea­ry to rest,
Calling to­day, call­ing to­day,
Bring Him your bur­den and you shall be blest;
He will not turn you away.


Jesus is wait­ing, O come to Him now,
Waiting to­day, wait­ing to­day,
Come with your sins, at His feet low­ly bow;
Come, and no lon­ger de­lay.


Jesus is plead­ing, O list to His voice,
Hear Him to­day, hear Him tod­ay,
They who be­lieve on His name shall re­joice;
Quickly arise and away.
