Representative Text

1 Come, while the Saviour calls,
Come, while you may;
Haste to his loving arms;
How can you stay?

Once he was crucified;
Once for your sins he died;
Come to the cleansing tide
Flowing today.

2 Come, while the Saviour calls,
Turn not away;
Now the accepted time,
Love pleads today. [Refrain]

3 Come, while the Saviour calls,
Do not delay;
Come to a throne of grace,
Seek hi today. [Refrain]

4 Come, while the Saviour calls,
Seek him by prayer;
Come to the mercy-seat,
Jesus is there. [Refrain]
