211. Jesus Is Calling

1 Jesus is tenderly calling thee home--
Calling today, calling today;
Why from the sunshine of love wilt thou roam
Farther and farther away?

Refrain:
Calling today,
Calling today,
Jesus is calling,
Is tenderly calling today.

2 Jesus is calling the weary to rest--
Calling today, calling today;
Bring Him thy burden and thou shalt be blest:
He will not turn thee away. (Refrain)

3 Jesus is waiting; O come to Him now--
Waiting today, waiting today;
Come with thy sins; at His feet lowly bow;
Come, and no longer delay. (Refrain)

4 Jesus is pleading; O list to his voice;
Hear Him today, hear Him today;
They who believe on His name shall rejoice;
Quickly arise and away. (Refrain)
