119. I Hear Thy Welcome Voice

1 I hear Thy welcome voice
That calls me, Lord, to Thee
For cleansing in Thy precious blood
That flow'd on Calvary.

I am coming, Lord!
Coming now to Thee!
Wash me, cleanse me in the blood
That flow'd on Calvary.

2 Tho' coming weak and vile,
Thou dost my strength assure;
Thou dost my vileness fully cleanse,
Till spotless all, and pure. [Chorus]

3 'Tis Jesus calls me on
To perfect faith and love,
To perfect hope, and peace, and trust,
For earth and heav'n above. [Chorus]

4 'Tis Jesus who confirms
The blessed work within,
By adding grace to welcom'd grace,
Where reign'd the pow'r of sin. [Chorus]

5 And He the witness gives
To loyal hearts and free,
That ev'ry promise is fulfilled,
If faith but brings the plea. [Chorus]

6 All hail, atoning blood!
All hail, redeeming grace!
All hail, the Gift of Christ, our Lord,
Our Strength and Righteousness. [Chorus]
