152. Jesus Is Calling for Thee Tonight

1 Drifting away from the peaceful fold,
Drifting far out in the storm and cold;
Sinner, oh, turn from your dreadful plight,
Jesus is calling for thee tonight.

Refrain:
Jesus is calling, will you give heed?
He will supply your soul’s every need;
He’s your best friend, so loving, and true;
Come to Him now, He’s calling for you.

2 Long have you wandered far from the fold,
Drowning in sin and stifling your soul;
Turn, oh, turn now, while hope is in sight,
Jesus is calling for thee tonight. [Refrain]

3 Jesus is calling, will you say yes?
Long He has waited your soul to bless;
Give up your sins and turn to the right,
Jesus is calling for thee tonight. [Refrain]

4 Oh, look away to Calvary’s cross,
There Jesus died to ransom the lost;
Wonderful love, oh, look on that sight,
Jesus is calling for thee tonight. [Refrain]
