OVER THE LINE




Oh, tender and sweet
was the Master’s voice
As He lovingly called to me:
“Come over the line!
It is only a step—
I am waiting, My child, for thee!”

“Over the line!”
Hear the sweet refrain!
Angels are chanting the heavenly strain:
“Over the line!”—
Why should I remain,
With a step between me and Jesus!


“But my sins are many,
my faith is small:”
Lo! the answer came quick and clear:
“Thou needest not trust
in thyself at all;
Step over the line: I am here!”

“Over the line!”
Hear the sweet refrain!
Angels are chanting the heavenly strain:
“Over the line!”—
Why should I remain,
With a step between me and Jesus!


“But my flesh is weak,”
I tearfully said,
“And the way I cannot see;
I fear if I try I may sadly fail,
And thus may dishonour Thee.”

“Over the line!”
Hear the sweet refrain!
Angels are chanting the heavenly strain:
“Over the line!”—
Why should I remain,
With a step between me and Jesus!


Ah, the world is cold,
And I cannot go back;
Press forward I surely must:
I will place my hand
in His wounded palm,
Step over the line, and trust.

“Over the line!”
Hear the sweet refrain!
Angels are chanting the heavenly strain:
“Over the line!”—
I will not remain,
I’ll cross it and go to Jesus!
