Representative Text

1 Christ is not willing that any should perish,
No, not any! no, not any!
Great is his love that can tenderly cherish,
Bless so many, bless so many.

Refrain:
Not willing that any should perish,
He would save all, for this was he sent;
Not willing that any should perish,
He would save you, come now, repent!

2 Jesus has furnished a blessed salvation,
Great, wide, reaching, great, wide, reaching,
Bidding us flee from sin’s great condemnation,
He’s beseeching, he’s beseeching. [Refrain]

3 Life may be yours if ‘tis life you are choosing,
Christ confessing, Christ confessing;
Oh, do not perish, salvation refusing,
Seek his blessing, seek his blessing. [Refrain]

4 Christ is the Friend of the weary and lonely,
Come and hear him, come and hear him;
Will you now choose him and trust in him only,
Keeping near him, keeping near him. [Refrain]
