Jesus calls us o’er the tumult is a hymn I was reminded of as I poured through the pages of my hymnbook. Listen close, do you hear his call? Do you hear him call you from your daily tasks into a life that is better? One filled with reward? Keep your ears open, the call is real.
I recently did another song by the author of this hymn. Cecil Alexander also wrote All Things Bright and Beautiful. She was the author of a good 400 hymns, 6 of which are still in current day Irish Hymnals. She used the money she made from her books/music to fund charitable works in her community. (source)
Jesus calls us over the tumult
Of our life’s wild, restless, sea;
Day by day His sweet voice soundeth,
Christian, follow Me!
As of old Saint Andrew heard it
By the Galilean lake,
Turned from home and toil and kindred,
Leaving all for Jesus’ sake.
Jesus calls us from the worship
Of the vain world’s golden store,
From each idol that would keep us,
Christian, love Me more!
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!
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.
