1 Are you sin-burdened and weary today?
Jesus is waiting to save you;
He will remove all your guilt far away,
Jesus is waiting to save you.

Come to the Savior, oh, come to him now,
Just as you are at his feet lowly bow;
Accept him today,
There’s death in delay!
Oh, come, he is waiting to save you just now.

2 Is your soul crimson or scarlet within?
Jesus is waiting to cleanse you;
White as the snow he will wash every sin,
Jesus is waiting to cleanse you. [Refrain]

3 Do you desire this new life to begin?
Jesus is waiting to help you;
Grace he will give all your battles to win,
Jesus is waiting to help you. [Refrain]

4 Are you oft tempted the wrong way to go?
Jesus is waiting to guide you;
Walk in his foot-steps, the way he doth know,
Safe home to heaven he’ll lead you. [Refrain]
