2825. I Have Heard Thy Voice, Lord Jesus

1. I have heard Thy voice, Lord Jesus,
Saying in Thy grace divine:
Fear thou not, I have redeemed thee;
I have called thee, thou art Mine.
Lord, I bring Thee full allegiance!
Therefore now to Thee I sing,
Answering, Yea, Thou hast redeemed me;
I am Thine, my Lord, my king!

2. I have nothing worth Thy taking,
Thou, whom heav’nly hosts adore,
But my heart is longing, yearning,
To be Thine forevermore.
So I come to Thee, Lord Jesus,
Laying in surrender meet
All I am, and have, and hope for,
All I love, at Thy dear feet.

3. Yet the offerings here are humble,
Which Thy children bring to Thee,
And their best and sweetest praises
Are but rendered falteringly.
But our song shall be triumphant,
When Thy glory we shall see:
All for Jesus! All for Jesus!
Now and through eternity.
