Representative Text

1 Jesus is calling, "Sinner, come home";
Tenderly pleading, why longer roam?
Hear Him, oh, hear Him say,"Long you have strayed away";
Come, then, oh, come today, Sinner, come home.

2 Jesus is calling, will you not come?
Will you not enter while there is room?
Sad, sad would be the fate if it should prove too late;
Why will you longer wait? Sinner, come home.

3 Jesus is calling, why still delay?
Life and salvation’s offered today;
Repentant, come, believe, eo not the Spirit grieve,
You should His love receive; Sinner, come home.
