1Lo! The voice of Jesus
Fondly speaks to all;
He it is Who frees us
From sin’s bitter thrall:
He it is Whose nature,
Human as our own,
Pleads for every creature
By the Father’s throne.
2Lo! The voice of Jesus,
Heard within the breast,
Tells us He will ease us,
Howsoe’er distrest–
Tells us that our sorrow
For the night may last,
But a glad tomorrow
Breaks upon us fast.
3Lo! The voice of Jesus
Bids us still endure,
Seek not what will please us,
But things just and pure;
Strive through self-denial
Upwards to the light,
Where Faith’s years of trial
Shall be lost in sight. Amen.
Song of Songs5:2I sleep, but my heart waketh: it is the voice of my beloved that knocketh, saying, Open to me, my sister, my love, my dove, my undefiled: for my head is filled with dew, and my locks with the drops of the night.
