Representative Text

1 Are you coming to the Savior now,
In the brightness of your youthful days?
Are you coming at His feet to bow
And to offer Him your thankful praise?

Are you coming?
Are you coming?
Will you not His pard’ning mercy crave?
Are you coming?
Are you coming?
Are you coming while He waits to save?

2 Are you coming to the Savior now,
While ‘tis easy to forsake the wrong?
Will you follow where He leads the way,
Will you gladly unto Him belong? [Refrain]

3 Are you coming to the Savior now,
While the door of mercy open stands?
Do not linger! soon ‘twill be too late,
Yield yourself unto the Lord’s commands. [Refrain]
