1 Jesus is calling thee, sinner today,
Why do you linger, why turn Him away?
Turn to Him gladly, O list to His voice
Whisper softly, “I’ll make thee rejoice.”

Chorus:
Calling for thee, yes, He’s calling for thee,
Waiting so patiently, calling for thee,
Long He has waited thy heart to receive,
Long He has called, called for thee.

2 His life a ransom He gave on the tree,
For thy salvation He suffered for thee;
He stands and knocks at the door of thy heart,
Open it quickly ere Jesus depart. [Chorus]

3 He longs to bless thee, to be thy dear guest,
Carry thy burdens and give thee sweet rest;
Come unto Jesus, O sinner come home,
Jesus is calling thee, why longer roam? [Chorus]
