Representative Text

1 Jesus is waiting near,
Come, he is calling today,
Banish your doubting and fear,
Linger no longer away.

Come, come,
Jesus is calling today,
Come, come,
Linger no longer away.

2 Hear thy sweet message of love,
Gladly the summons obey,
Seek ye the kingdom above,
Linger no longer away. [Refrain]

3 Cast on the Savior thy care,
Hear his glad word and obey,
Trust him your burden to bear,
He is the life and the way. [Refrain]
