Representative Text

1 Brother, leave the path of sin,
Jesus waits to help you;
He can break the bands within,
Jesus waits to help you.

Victory! victory!
Glorious, glorious victory!
Christ will break the tempter’s power,
Give you vict’ry from this hour.

2 Brother, be no more a slave,
Jesus waits to help you;
Perfect freedom you may have,
Jesus waits to help you. [Refrain]

3 Brother, come and join our band,
Jesus waits to help you;
He will lead you by the hand,
Jesus waits to help you. [Refrain]

4 Brother, will you still delay?
Jesus waits to help you;
Take a stand for right today,
Jesus waits to help you. [Refrain]
