Representative Text

1 Jesus is waiting, oh, sinner, for thee,
Calling so tenderly “Come unto me,”
Waiting His mercy and peace to impart,
Come then, oh, wanderer, give Him thy heart.

Come to Him now, He’s waiting for thee,
Turn not away from His mercy so free,
Jesus is waiting, waiting for thee,
Calling so tenderly, “Come unto Me.”

2 Come from the path that seems pleasant and wide,
Narrow the way if thou walk by His side—
Narrow, yet brighten’d with blessings untold,
Leading thee home to the city of gold. [Refrain]

3 Come to the Saviour whose grace is so free,
Come to Him now while He calleth for thee,
Enter the fold by the only true door,
Come, quickly come, lest He call thee no more. [Refrain]
