Tenderly call­eth the Sav­ior,
Calling your heart to in­cline;
Lovingly, plead­ing­ly call­ing,
Come, lost one, now be Mine.


Now I am trust­ing in Je­sus,
Safely in Him to abide;
Knowing His grace is suf­fi­cient,
Trusting what­ev­er be­tide.

Pathways with clouds may be co­vered,
Purpose and work be un­seen;
Steps will be bright­ly il­lum­ined,
Firm on His love if we lean.


Warm in the heart burns the Spi­rit,
Happiness heav’n­ly, di­vine;
Toil grows so light in Thy bless­ing,
Service so pre­cious is Thine.


Jesus His yoke doth make ea­sy,
Charming us sweet­ly to toil;
Giving us strength in our la­bor,
Sowing in ev­ery soil.


Time for our la­bor is short­en­ing;
Harvest-day soon we’ll be­hold;
Moments of wea­ri­ness end­ing,
Treasures and sheaves to un­fold.
