Representative Text

1 Jesus, the Saviour, is calling today,
Sinner, will you come?
Do not reject Him, oh turn not away,
Sinner, will you come?

Refrain:
Come, come, do not delay,
Jesus is tenderly pleading,
Waiting to pardon and welcome you home,
Oh, come to Him while you may.

2 Many are wandering far from the fold,
Dying, sick and sore,
Christ, the good Shepherd, with mercy untold,
Seeks them evermore. [Refrain]

3 Come to Me ye that are weary and worn,
I will give you rest,
Easy the yoke when with Me it is borne,
Take it and be blest. [Refrain]

4 Certain the road to eternity lies,
Bringing life or woe,
Jesus will give you a home in the skies,
Can you still say No? [Refrain]
