101. 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 I hear Him saying,
"Christian, come and follow me."

2 As of old, disciples heard it
By the Galilean lake,
Turned from home and work and leisure,
Leaving all for His dear sake:

3 In our joys and in our sorrows,
Days of toil and hours of ease,
Still He calls in cares and pleasures,
"Christian, love me more than these."

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