366. Jesus in Mercy Is Calling

1 Jesus in mercy is calling,
Hear the kind message of love;
Come, He is waiting to save you
For the bright mansions above.

Refrain:
Calling for thee,
Come and be free,
Jesus in mercy
Is calling for thee.

2 Jesus in mercy is calling,
Leave the dark follies of sin;
Heaven will open its portals,
Jesus will welcome you in. [Refrain]

3 Jesus in mercy is calling,
He has been waiting so long;
He will dispel all your sorrow,
Mourning He’ll turn to a song. [Refrain]

4 Jesus in mercy is calling,
Hasten, O sinner, and bow;
Leave all the world and its pleasure,
Pardon is waiting you now. [Refrain]
