Above the voices of the world around me




Above the voices of the world around me.
My hopes and dreams, my cares
And loves and fears,
The long awaited call
Of Christ has found me,
The voice of Jesus echoes in my ears:
I gave my life to break
The cords that bind you,
I rose from death to set your spirit free;
Turn from your sins
And put the past behind you,
Take up your cross
And come and follow me'.


What can I offer Him who calls me to Him?
Only the wastes of sin and self and shame;
A mind confused,
A heart that never knew Him,
A tongue unskilled at naming Jesus' Name.
Yet at your call,
And hungry for your blessing,
Drawn by that cross
Which moves a heart of stone.
Now Lord I come,
My tale of sin confessing,
And in repentance turn to you alone.


Lord, I believe;
Help now my unbelieving;
I come in faith
Because your promise stands;
Your word of pardon
And of peace receiving,
All that I am I place within your Hands.
Let me become what You shall
choose to make me,
Freed from the guilt and burden of my sins;
Jesus is mine, who never shall forsake me,
And in His love my newborn life begins.
