1 It is just a step to Jesus;
Will you take it, friend, tonight?
While He waiteth to receive you,
Won’t you enter into light?
With a love so deep and tender,
Deeper than the deepest sea,
He implores you and invites you,
Kindly saying, “Come to me.”
2 It is just a step to Jesus;
Haste, O haste, and take it now!
Breathe a pray’r, for He is list’ning,
Make to Him a solemn vow;
Place your hand in His confiding,
Let Him lead you where He will,
Thro’ the meadows green with verdure,
By the waters cool and still.
3 It is just a step to Jesus;
Sinner, won’t you cross the line?
Won’t you let His grace, so precious,
In your life forever shine?
Tho’ the world has charms, alluring,
They are like the fading leaf,
And at last will fall and wither,—
Leaving only pain and grief.
4 It is just a step to Jesus;
Do not tarry, come tonight!
Look to Him, and He will lead you
Out of darkness into light;
With a full and glad surrender
Put your trust in Him, and say,
“Where Thou leadest, O my Saviour,
I will follow all the way.?
