There’s a voice that’s calling to a place of grace,
Bidding you enter, if you’ll trust now by faith.
Won’t you turn around from where you’ve been,
and let the Saviour lead you on in.
Oh, there’s a voice that’s calling, calling you in.

~

Listen to Jesus, he’s calling your name.
He’s awaiting your answer; don’t turn him away.
Listen to Jesus, and turn from your sin,
to the voice that’s calling, calling you in.

~
There’s a voice that called out from Calvary’s tree,
“Father, forgive them,” as he died to redeem.
Jesus shed his blood to ransom you.
The work is finished, the battle’s through.
Oh, there’s a voice that’s calling, calling to you.

~
Listen to Jesus, he’s calling your name.
He’s awaiting your answer; don’t turn him away.
Listen to Jesus, and turn from your sin,
to the voice that’s calling, calling you in.

~
There’s a voice that promised he would come again,
back down from heaven, to take up all the saints.
Now there’s just one thing for you to do.
Turn ‘round to Jesus, he’ll save you too.
Oh, there’s a voice that’s calling, calling to you.
~

Listen to Jesus, he’s calling your name.
He’s awaiting your answer; don’t turn him away.
Listen to Jesus, and turn from your sin,
to the voice that’s calling, calling you in.

~
Listen to Jesus, and turn from your sin,
to the voice that's calling, calling you in.

Until the day when Jesus finally calls us home, he will continue to call the lost to that place of grace, and he wants to use us to reach them. Just as he sent people into my life to give me the good news of forgiveness, he is also calling me to spread that message to those he brings across my path.

Matthew 11:28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
Ephesians 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
Luke 23:34a Then said Jesus, father forgive them; for they know not what they do.
John 14:3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
