Representative Text

1. Almost, but still I resisted,
Almost but never believed;
Almost, but waited and waited,
Till the sweet Spirit was grieved.

Now is the time to receive Him,
Now is the time to be saved;
Now, while the Spirit is pleading,
Now, Jesus waiteth to save.

2. Almost at one time I yielded,
Almost at one time was saved;
Almost, but drifted and drifted,
Satan thus held me enslaved. [Refrain]

3. Almost, why longer refuse Him?
Almost, O lost one, believe;
Almost, swing open thy heart’s door,
Jesus the Savior receive. [Refrain]
