502. God Is Calling Thee

1 Is God calling thee, O guilty sinner?—
Satan has long on thee imposed—
Or has the Spirit gone forever?
Is thy heart’s door against Him closed.

Refrain:
Come, sinner, God is calling thee;
Come, sinner, God is calling thee;
He is pleading, interceding;
Come, God is calling thee.

2 Is God calling thee? Wilt thou not hear Him?
Sinner, He’s pleading now for thee;
In pity His Spirit draws thee near Him,
Mercy and love are shown so free. [Refrain]

3 Is God calling thee in great compassion?
Then let thy heart this Christ receive;
He died on the cross to seal thy pardon;
How canst thou thus His Spirit grieve? [Refrain]

4 Is God calling thee? Then wait no longer;
Canst thou His pleading voice despise?
If thou wilt obey, ’twill make thee stronger—
From sin and guilt thou canst arise. [Refrain]

5 Yes, God’s calling me, and shall I slight Him?
With this vain world for aye be lost?
For His greater love I’ll not betray Him,
No, I’ll be His at any cost. [Refrain]
