If you know where to get a good pho­to of Mac­kay (head-and-shoul­ders, at least 200×300 pix­els), would you ?


Jesus found me wandering,
Far from Him astray,
Tenderly He led me
To the shining way;
Words of peace He whispered,
Bade my fears depart;
Oh, ’twas sweet to hear Him,
Whispering in my heart.


Whispering, whispering,
Oh, what joy is mine;
Whispering, whispering,
Words of love divine;
No strain of earthly music
Such rapture can impart;
I’m glad I ever heard Him
Whispering in my heart.

I can hear Him whisper,
When my soul is tried,
Fear not, I am with thee;
I am at thy side.

When the foe assails me,
Jesus takes my part;
I rejoice to hear Him
Whispering in my heart.


Would you hear the Savior’s
Gentle voice within?
Now, while He is calling,
Leave the path of sin.
Peace that passeth knowledge
Freely He’ll impart;
You today may hear Him
Whispering in your heart.
