‘Oku kei ui ‘a e ‘Otua

Himi 522 Ko e ngaahi ui ‘a e ‘Otua

Tune: Breslau

‘Oku kei ui ‘a e ‘Otua
‘A e angahala tokanga mu‘a;
Ko futu ta‘u mo ‘ene fai,
Na‘a tukuā ‘o ke fēfē ai!

‘Oku ne kei ui;
‘Oku ne kei ui;
‘Oku ne kei ui;
Tokanga na‘a ne tuku

‘Oku kei ui, “‘Alu atu
Ho fakamolemole ke ma‘u.
Na‘a ‘osi taimi tali hū
‘O pau ho mala ‘ikai liliu”

‘Oku kei ui, “Tama, ‘ā;
He teke mohe ke tō ‘a e la‘ā?
Ho ngafa me‘a te‘eki fai;
Na‘a ‘ikai lava ‘o ke fēfē ai!”

‘Oku kei ui “‘Alā ha‘u
Ta ‘eve‘eva ngouetapu;
Taufa ni tangitangi ē
Fuhi kakala fulipē.”

God calling yet; shall I not hear?

Gehard Tersteegen (T: Sarah B. Findlater) Tune: Breslau

  C   G                  D7       G
1 God calling yet; shall I    not hear?
2 God calling yet; shall I    not rise?
3 God calling yet; and  shall he  knock,
4 Ah, yield him    all;  in   him confide;
5 God calling yet; I     can- not stay;

  D                         A                D
1 Earth's plea-sures shall  I     still hold dear?
2 Can     I    his   lo-    ving  voice des- pise,
3 And     I    my    heart  the   clo-  ser  lock?
4 Where   but  with  him    doth  peace a-   bide?
5 My      heart I    yield  with- out   de-  lay;

  G                  Em        D7        G
1 Shall life's swift pass-ing  years all fly,
2 And   base-  ly    His  kind care  re- pay?
3 He    still  is    wait-ing  to    re- ceive,
4 Break loose, let   earth-ly  bonds be riven,
5 Vain    world,     farewell! from thee I part;

  D7            G                  D7  G
1 And still my  soul   in  slum-   ber lie?
2 He  calls me  still; can I       de- lay?
3 And shall I   dare   his Spir-   it  grieve?
4 And let   the spir-  it  rise    to heaven.
5 The voice of  God   hath reached my heart.
