The Call Answered.
Do you hear the Savior calling,
By the wooings of his voice?
Do you hear the accents falling?
Will you make the precious choice?
Ref. -- I am list'ning; oh, I'm list'ning
Just to hear the accents fall!
I am list'ning; oh, I'm list'ning
To the Savior's gentle call!
2 By his Spirit he is wooing,
Softly drawing us to him,
Thro' the day and night pursuing,
With his gentle voice to win.
3 By the Word of Truth he's speaking
To the wand'ring, erring ones;
List! the voice the stillness breaking!
Hear the sweet and solemn tones!
4 In his providential dealings,
Even in his stern decrees,
In the loudest thunders pealing,
Or the murm'ring of the breeze.
W. S. Marshall.
