Lyrics

I hear sweet whisperings of love
When Je­sus speaks to me;
And blessèd comfort from above,
When Je­sus speaks to me.

Refrain

When Je­sus speaks, when Je­sus speaks,
So faithful He will ever be
That I will rejoice
To hear His sweet voice,
When Je­sus speaks to me.

’Twill be sure guidance day by day,
When Je­sus speaks to me;
To lead me in His own right way,
When Je­sus speaks to me.

Refrain

There’ll be rebuke, whene’er I sin,
When Je­sus speaks to me;
A closer fellowship to win,
When Je­sus speaks to me.

Refrain

His kingly word shall be with pow’r,
When Je­sus speaks to me;
Grace for the needs of ev’ry hour,
When Je­sus speaks to me.
