the Master’s call

O, how I turned to running,

When I heard the Judge’s call;

And how I thought I was condemned,

To being hell’s eternal thrall.

But when most sunken in my sins,

I found mercy for them all:

O, how I came a running,

When I heard the Saviour’s call.

O, how I went to chasing,

When heard sins enticing call;

Forgetting my dear Jesus,

Who had saved me from the fall.

But in from night of weeping,

A glorious dawn I saw:

And how my sins seemed empty,

When I heard the Master’s call.

O, how I felt a drawing,

When I heard my Lover’s voice:

For ‘twas He who taught me how to love,

And in his love rejoice.

And now I must go to him:

I’ll take no other choice.

O, how my heart was captured,

When I heard my Lover’s voice.

Lord, may my heart be ready,

When I hear the Sender’s call.

And may I hide within they strength,

In Satan’s tempting gall.

Listen, now, listen,

Ye sinners one and all:

To how my soul was lifted,

When it heard the Saviour’s call.

New pictures to go up in the gallery soon (as possible).

  • an overarching philosophy (for me, anyway)

  • Quote of the Day

    “We love the old saints, missionaries, martyrs, and reformers. Our Luthers, Bunyans, Wesleys and Asburys, etc... We will write their biographies, reverence their memories, frame their epitaphs, and build their monuments. We will do anything except imitate them. We cherish the last drop of their blood, but watch carefully over the first drop of our own.”
    - A. W. Tozer
