HYMN 544

H.C 404 8s 7s (FE 570)
"And He saith unto them, follow me, 
and they straitway left their nets and
followed Him" - Matt.4:19-20

1.  JESUS calls us! o‘er the tumult

     Of our life's wild restless sea

     Day by day His sweet voice soundeth,

      Saying: Christian. follow Me.

2.  As, of old, apostles heard it

     By the Galilean lake,

     Turned from home and toil and kindred, 

     Leaving all for His dear sake.

3.  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!

4.  In our joys and in our sorrows, 

     Days of toil and hours of ease,

     Still he calls, in cares and pleasures, 

     That we love Him more than these.

5.  Jesus calls us! By Thy mercies, 

     Saviour, make us hear Thy call,

     Give our hearts to Thine obedience,

     Serve and love The best of all.  Amen
