1 Is there a sinner awaiting
Mercy and pardon today?
Welcome the news that we bring Him,
"Jesus is pass [sic] this way!"
Coming in love and in mercy,
Pardon and peace to bestow,
Coming to save the poor sinner
From His heart-anguish and woe.

Jesus is passing this way
Today, today!
While He is near, O believe Him,
Open your heart to receive Him,
For Jesus is passing this way,
Is passing this way today.

2 Brother, the Master is waiting,
Waiting to freely forgive;
Why not this moment accept Him,
Trust in His grace and live?
He is so tender and precious,
He is so near you today;
Open your heart to receive Him,
While He is passing this way. [Chorus]

3 Yes, He is coming to bless you
While in contrition you bow;
Coming from sin to redeem you,
Ready to save you now;
Can you refuse the salvation
Jesus is offering here?
Open your heart to admit Him,
While He is coming so near. [Chorus]
