Somebody to Call His Name

By Rutha Turner Jones, penned on Dec 16, 2013

In the quiet of silence, I heard Him say, is somebody calling my name?

The angels cry, hosanna!

Is there anybody on the earth calling my name?

The angles cry, hosanna! 

My heart longs to hear somebody on the earth calling my name.

Somebody calling on Jesus!

In the quiet of silence, I heard Him say, will you call my name?

And out of my belly came a cry like no other, Jesus!

I’ll call your name, Jesus! Jesus!

I’ll be the voice in the earth calling your name.

Jesus!  Jesus! Jesus!

In the quiet of silence, I heard Him say, I’ll answer.
