1 Don’t you hear the Saviour’s voice so sweetly calling,
From the paths of sin which you so long have trod?
On your heart His gentle accents now are falling,
Heed His pleading, and get right with God.

Refrain:
Get right with God,
Get right with God,
O do not let the Spirit now depart,
Get right with God,
Get right with God,
And grant Him glad admission to thy heart.

2 All around you there are dangers so appalling,
There are pitfalls to allure you from the right;
But the loving voice of Jesus now is calling,
He’ll defend you with His arm of might. [Refrain]

3 Will you heed the Spirit as with tender pleading,
He is calling you to leave the paths of sin?
While the Saviour now for you is interceding,
Will you not the Heav’nly Life begin? [Refrain]
