Shall He plead with you in vain?
Oh, receive Him, oh, receive Him,
And salvation now obtain.

2 Yield no more to sin and folly,
So displeasing in His sight;
Jesus loves the pure and holy;
They alone are His delight.
Seek His favor, seek His favor,
And your hearts to Him unite.

3 All your sins to Him confessing,
Who is ready to forgive
Seek the Saviour’s richest blessing;
On His precious name believe;
He is waiting, He is waiting;
Will you not His grace receive?
