Representative Text

1 Jesus still invites you,
Love and mercy is the call;
Do you still reject the message?
As it comes to one and all?

Refrain:
Come, oh come,
Repent ye and believe,
Come, oh come,
Life eternal to receive.

2 Jesus still is knocking
Gently at the heart of sin,
Can you let him knock unheeded?
And refuse to let him in? [Refrain]

3 Jesus still is waiting,
Scarlet sins to wash away,
Do you feel no need of cleansing?
That you do not come today? [Refrain]

4 Jesus still is seeking
Erring souls mid hedges wild;
Can you live to him a stranger?
Can you die unreconciled? [Refrain]
