Full Text

1 Jesus is lovingly calling,
Calling for you and for me;
Tho’ we have wander’d in darkness,
He from all sin will set free;
Long has He waited our turning,
Straying afar from the fold,
Come, and no longer reject Him,
He will give blessings untold.

Calling for thee,
Calling for me;
Sinner, Oh, come and seek pardon,
Offer’d so boundless and free.

2 Jesus is lovingly calling,
Careless one, hear His sweet voice:
“I will abundantly pardon,
Come now, and make me thy choice;”
What shall thou gain by delaying?
Nothing but grief and despair;
Cast all thy burdens upon Him,
Thou shall be comforted there. [Refrain]

3 Jesus is lovingly calling,
Calling the weary to rest;
Soon we shall cross the dark river,
Soon we’ll be safe with the blest;
If we’ve been true to the Master,
Seeking His will to obey,
We shall inherit a mansion,
He will not turn us away. [Refrain]
