  1   Jesus calls us over the tumult
      Of our life's wild, restless, sea;
      Day by day His sweet voice soundeth,
      Saying, "Christian, follow Me!"
  2   Jesus calls us from the worship
      Of the vain world's golden store,
      From each idol that would keep us,
      Saying, "Christian, love Me more!"
  3   In our joys and in our sorrows,
      Days of toil and hours of ease,
      Still He calls, in cares and pleasures,
      "Christian, love Me more than these!"
  4   Jesus calls us! By Thy mercies,
      Savior may we hear Thy call,
      Give our hearts to Thine obedience,
      Serve and love Thee best of all.
