Jesus Calls Us

When studying recently I came across this tid bit of information that encouraged me.  I wanted to share it with all of you.  This came from my Women of Faith Study Bible.

Cecil Frances Alexander wrote over 400 hymns in her lifetime.  She also founded, with her sister, a school for the deaf.

Jesus Calls Us

Jesus calls us over the tummult

Of our life’s wild, restless, sea;

Day by day His sweet voice soundeth,

Saying, “Christian, follow Me!”

As of old Saint Andrew heard it

By the Galilean lake,

Turned from home and toil and kindred,

Leaving all for Jesus’ sake.

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!”

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!”-

Jesus calls us! By the mercies, Savior,may we hear Thy call, Give our hearts to Thine obedience, Serve and love Thee best of all.

-Cecil Frances Humphreys Alexander (1818-1895)
