Jesus calls us over the tumultWords by Cecil F. Alexander (1818-1895), 1852Tune: GALILEE by William H. Jude (1851-1922), 1874Key signature: A flat major (4 flats)Time signature: 3/2Meter: 188.8.131.52.Public Domain1. Jesus calls us; o’er the tumult Of our life’s wild, restless, sea; Day by day His sweet voice soundeth, Saying, “Christian, follow Me!”2. Jesus calls us from the worship Of the vain world’s golden store, From each idol that would keep us, Saying, “Christian, love Me more!”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.
