Jesus Will Save You Now

Representative Text

1 Jesus, the Lord who was crucified,
Jesus will save you now.
You are the sinner for whom He died,
Jesus will save you now,
Loving you tenderly long ago,
Leaving His home for the earth below,
None other Savior your heart may know,
Jesus will save you now.

2 Friends and companions may give you love,
Jesus alone can save;
This will not bear you in peace above,
Jesus alone can save.
Why should you wait for a louder call?
Why should you linger till clouds appall?
Hasten to Him ere the darkness fall,
Jesus alone can save.

3 This is the time, the accepted time,
Jesus is calling now;
Come unto Him, ere the last hour chime,
Jesus is calling now.
Come for the moments are flying fast,
Soon will the season be overpast,
Come, for the door shall be closed at last,
Jesus is calling now.

4 Peace in believing you now may claim,
Trust in your Savior now;
Perfect redemption is through His name,
Trust in the Savior now.
Holy and harmless and undefiled,
Waiting for you to be reconciled,
Come to Him now as a little child,
Trust in your Savior now.
