Suggested Tune DARWALL'S 148TH (6.6.6.6.4.4 4.4.)


1. As children of God's love,
  we listen for a Sound;
not thunder from above,
   no quake to shake the ground;
        no trumpet note,
             no gales nor fires;
             for angel choirs
        we listen not.

 

2.  For children in God's will,
   this Sound is plain to hear:
God's whisper small and still
   within the faithful's ear.
       So speak, O Lord:
         say what you may,
         we would obey
       your every word.

 

3.  We of such little Faith!
   We drown in storms of life;
lose sight of Jesus' face,
   and we are soon in strife.
       Yet from these waves -
         from darkest lakes
       of our mistakes -
         our Jesus saves!

 

4.  We heard and we believe,
   we called upon His name;
now this is why we live:
   in faith we have been saved.
       Now we must share:
          If we don't speak
          to all who seek,
       how will they hear?

 

5.  Come children of the Lord,
   take courage, do not fear!
God's promise is His Word
   and surely He is near.
       Go out in faith:
           Go tell the world
           the needful word
       that Jesus saves!
