Representative Text

1. Come over, lost one, come
Over the line today,
Where Jesus bids you stand;
O come away.

Chorus:
Come over, O come over,
Over the line today;
And heav'n delight, while men invite,
And angels seem to say,
Come over, O come over,
Over the line today;
To Jesus bow,
He calls you now,
Come over, come today.

2. Only a step to God,
One step to cross the line;
Hasten, O dying one,
Touch the Divine! [Chorus]

3, Moment of priceless worth,
When God has drawn so near;
His wondrous tenderness,
Sinner, revere. [Chorus]

4. Dare not this call refuse,
When duty is so plain;
The Spirit long denied
Comes not again. [Chorus]

5. Lost one, this call to you
May be the very last;
Haste! ere forevermore
Your day be past. [Chorus]
