672. Jesus calls us o'er the tumult

1 Jesus calls us o'er the tumult
of our life's wild, restless sea;
day by day his voice still calls us
saying "Christian, follow me."

2 As of old Saint Andrew heard it
by the Galilean lake,
turned from home and work and kindred,
leaving all for Jesus' 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,
Jesus calls, in cares and pleasures,
"Christian, love me more than these."

5 Jesus calls us by your mercies,
Saviour, may we hear your call,
give our hearts in glad obedience,
serve and love you best of all.
