2813. I Hear a Loving Voice

1. I hear a loving voice
that calls me o’er and o’er
That bids me lay my burden down,
and rest forevermore.
I hear a loving voice,
’tis Thine, O Lamb of God,
Who from the cradle to the cross
the path of sorrow trod.

2. I hear Thy warning voice;
O let me not delay;
I must be saved by Thee alone,
there is no other way;
Thy Word my only plea,
I come without a fear;
I seek thee while Thou canst be found,
and call while Thou art near.

3. O, patient, loving voice!
O firm, abiding Friend,
I now accept Thy offered grace:
Lord, keep me to the end.
My soul with rapture filled,
Thy wonders shall proclaim;
My tongue shall sing Thy righteousness,
my life confess Thy name.
