1 Jesus calls thee, wand’rer, come;
Calls today, calls today;
Longs to bid thee welcome home,
Home today, home today;
Wondrous love his heart doth feel,
Wondrous love he would reveal,
For his own thy life would seal,
Seal today, seal today.

Refrain:
Come today, come today,
Hear the blessed Saviour say:
I will cleanse thy sins away;
Why delay? why delay?

2 Patiently he waits for thee,
Waits today, waits today,
Offers full salvation free,
Free today, free today;
Wouldst thou know his saving grace?
Wouldst thou feel his strong embrace,
Thro’ thy life his favor trace?
Yield today, yield today. [Refrain]

3 He will cleanse your sins away,
All away, all away;
Why delay the glorious day?
Why delay? why delay?
Oh, the joy you might receive
If on him you would believe,
Thought nor fancy can conceive:
Don’t delay, don’t delay. [Refrain]

4 Now he pleads with tender voice,
Pleads today, pleads today,
Make his love your sacred choice,
Choose today, choose today;
Shall his pleading be refused?
Shall his mercy be abused?
Come, by grace divine enthused,
Come today, come today. [Refrain]
