1. Far from God, away from Jesus,
Straying in the paths of sin,
Knowing not God’s full salvation,
Jesus calls you midst earth’s din.
Come, ’tis Jesus calls you;
Come, without delay.
He is willing now to save you;
Come, O come today.
2. Why continue in your roaming?
Jesus bids you come today.
Mercy’s offer still is open;
Why not come without delay? [Refrain]
3. How much longer will you tarry?
How much longer will you roam?
Listen, Jesus calls you to Him;
Will you not at once come home? [Refrain]
4. Can you stay away from Jesus
With eternity in view?
Can you still reject His mercy
When you hear His call so true? [Refrain]
5. You may almost come to Jesus,
But almost will never save;
For the soul that fully trusts Him
On the cross His life He gave. [Refrain]
