I Hear Thy Welcome Voice – Sunday Songs

Leave a comment

I Hear Thy Welcome Voice by Lewis Hartsough is a wonderful hymn of response, made all the more so by its setting to the tune GWAHODDIAD.

As a bonus, here’s a massed Welsh choice singing Gwahoddiad.
(The singing starts around the one minute mark)

The lyrics:
1
I hear Thy welcome voice
That calls me, Lord, to Thee,
For cleansing in Thy precious blood
That flowed on Calvary.
Refrain.
I am coming, Lord!
Coming now to Thee!
Wash me, cleanse me in the blood
That flowed on Calvary!
2
Tho’ coming weak and vile,
Thou dost my strength assure;
Thou dost my vileness fully cleanse,
Till spotless all, and pure.
Refrain.
3
‘Tis Jesus calls me on
To perfect faith and love,
To perfect hope and peace and trust,
For earth and heav’n above.
Refrain.
4
All hail! atoning blood!
All hail! redeeming grace!
All hail! the gift of Christ our Lord,
Our strength and righteousness.
Refrain.
