Above the voices of the world around me,my hopes and dreams, my cares and loves and fears,the long-awaited call of Christ has found me,the voice of Jesus echoes in my ears:‘I gave my life to break the cords that bind you,I rose from death to set your spirit free;turn from your sins, and put the past behind you,take up your cross and come and follow me.’
It is important to note that the first four lines of this famous hymn effectively says that the voice of Jesus echoes not only above "the voices of the world around me" but includes voices inside of me. The voices of hopes, dreams, cares, loves and fears. The Voice of Jesus is irresistible. It penetrates without opposition and calls us to Him. It is an excellent truth that when God decides to speak he is certainly heard! Without doubt!
