"Come Unto Me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light."

(Matthew 11:28-30). 

THE CALL OF THE CHRIST

The call of the Christ rings out today,
Who will make reply?
For labor, or service, or battle fray,
Or seeking the lost who have gone astray,
O Master, I’m ready to go or stay—
Here am I!

Refrain

Here am I for service, whatsoe’er it be;
I am waiting orders, Master, now from Thee;
I have heard Thy summons from dark Calvary,
And I gladly answer, “Master, here am I!”

The call of the Christ rings sweet and clear,
Who will make reply?
Thy calling, O Master, today I hear,
And gladly will follow Thee, far or near;
With Thee as my Leader, no harm I fear,
Here am I!

Refrain

The call of the Christ is now for you,
Will you make reply?
I’m waiting, O Master, Thy will to do;
Count me on the side of the brave and true,
I’ll follow Thee all of the battle thro’,
Here am I!

Refrain
