Representative Text

1 Jesus is pleading,
Patiently pleading,
Sweetly and tenderly, sinner with thee;
He will receive thee,
Comfort, relieve thee,
Seek Him this moment, salvation is free.

Go not away,
Seek Him today,
For He is waiting thy Savior to be;
Nevermore grieve Him
Come and receive Him;
Freely He offers a pardon for thee.

2 Moments are speeding,
Still He is pleading;
Much He has suffered thy soul to redeem;
Sorely to need Him,
Surely to heed Him,
Hasten at once to the soul-cleansing stream.[Refrain]

3 Jesus is pleading,
Tenderly pleading;
Sinner, no longer resist that sweet voice;
Gladly He’ll meet thee,
Lovingly greet thee;
Trust Him completely, be saved and rejoice. [Refrain]
