Though God calls out your name both night and day
You almost always never hear His voice,
And though you ask your friends “What did you say?”
That haunting sound persists and lessens choice.
It’s easier to guess when does God not
Reach out to you with love and call your name;
A million times a second you are sought
To stand and in the Savior’s name acclaim
That Jesus is the Truth, the Life, the Way,
And if you listen, Spirit’s voice is clear
That through the cross you’ll never go astray,
So when God calls your name say “Speak, I hear.”
Then when you come to know God’s gentle call
You never will forget His voice at all.
And the LORD came, and stood,
and called as at other times, Samuel, Samuel.
Then Samuel answered, Speak; for thy servant heareth.
1 Samuel 3:10 KJV
