Representative Text

1 Hear the Savior sweetly saying,
Call them in, make no delay;
Call them in, say all are welcome,
Bid them come to me today.

Refrain:
Call them in,
Bid them come,
Hear the Saviors sweetly saying,
“Call them in, oh, call them in!”

2 Hear Him say, let no one linger,
Call them in from out the cold,
Call them in, the little children,
Bid them come within the fold. [Refrain]

3 Call them in, I cannot leave them,
Call them in, I cannot go;
Oh, make haste, for souls are dying,
Snatch them from the brink of woe. [Refrain]
