"The Savior Calls; Let Every Ear" by Anne Steele, 1716-1778 Text From: THE HANDBOOK TO THE LUTHERAN HYMNAL (St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, 1942)p.205 1. The Savior calls; let every ear Attend the heavenly sound. Ye doubting souls, dismiss your fear; Hope smiles reviving round. 2. For every thirsty, Ionging heart Here streams of bounty flow And life and health and bliss impart To banish mortal woe. 3. Here springs of sacred pleasures rise To ease your every pain; Immortal fountain, full supplies! Nor shall you thirst in vain. 4. Ye sinners, come, 'tis Mercy's voice; The gracious call obey; Mercy invites to heavenly joys, And can you yet delay? 5. Dear Savior, draw reluctant hearts; To Thee let sinners fly And take the bliss Thy love imparts And drink and never die.This text was converted to ascii format for Project Wittenberg by Cindy A.
