1. Are there within you base passions rife,
Pride and vainglory, rancor and strife?
Heed, heed the call to the better life;
Get right, get right with God!

Jesus of Nazareth standeth here,
Friend of the sinner, Savior so dear;
Call ye upon Him while He is near;
Get right, get right with God!

2. Why not let Jesus your burdens bear?
Ye who are sinking into despair,
Lost for eternity, O beware!
Get right, get right with God! [Refrain]

3. Are you now longing for perfect peace?
Would you from bondage now have release?
Seek ye the Lord e’er His pleadings cease;
Get right, get right with God! [Refrain]

4. Have you a mother in yonder home?
Think of her prayers and tears as you roam;
Hear her still pleading with you to come;
Get right, get right with God! [Refrain]
