Jesus Calls Us O'er the Tumult
Words by Mrs. Cecil F. Alexander
Music by William H. Jude

Matthew 4:19
"And he saith unto them, Follow me,
and I will make you fishers of men."


          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."

          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 pleasure,
          "Christian, love Me more than these."

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