Innerligt, kärleksfullt Jesus dig kallar

Representative Text

1 Innerligt, kärleksfullt Jesus dig kallar,
Syndare, kallar just dig.
Trofast han än på din hjärtedörr klappar,
Ropande: Öppne för mig!

Kom hem, Kom hem
Irrande barn, o, kom hem!
Innerligt, kärleksfullt Jesus dig kallar:
Irrande barn, o kom hem!

2 Hvarför då dröja, när Jesus så ljufligt
Bjuder dig komma till sig!
Hvarför gå fridlös, när Herren i ordet
Talar om nåd och för dig? [Kör]

3 O, huru fort våra dagar bortila!
Resan är kort ock för dig.
Dödsstunden nalkas. Skall Jesus då nödgas
Visa dig bort ifrån sig? [Kör]

4 O, hvilken underbar kärlek han hyser,
Kärlek till dig och till mig!
Fast du har syndat, han dock allt förlåter,
Hanfr¨lsar dig liksom mig. [Kör]
