1 Come now, from your slumber awaking,
And list to the voice of the Lord;
Above you His sunlight is breaking,
And o’er you His love is outpoured.

O come, come, come, come,
Come while the Spirit is calling,
O come to the Saviour today,
This may be your last invitation;
O come and no longer delay.

2 Find pardon and peace in believing,
And rest only saved ones can know;
The grace of assurance receiving,
And joy only He can bestow. [Refrain]

3 Then haste while the Saviour is waiting,
The call of the Gospel obey;
Give over your fruitless debating,
And kneel at His pierced feet today. [Refrain]

4 Today is the day of salvation,
Now enter the wide open door;
This may be your last invitation;
God’s Spirit may call you no more. [Refrain]
