Representative Text

1 Life is full of evil, brother,—cling to the right;
Wander not in darkness, brother,—walk in the light;
There is Truth to guide you, brother, —shining clear and bright,
If you heed the Spirit’s voice, and come at the call.

Refrain:
O come at the call,
The Spirit and the Bride say, Come;
O come at the call,
To our heav’nly Father’s home.

2 Jesus now is waiting, brother,—waiting for thee;
Sweetly He is saying, brother,—“Come unto me;”
There is Grace to save you, brother,—grace to set you free,
If you heed the Spirit’s voice, and come at the call. [Refrain]

3 Gladly you may say it, brother,—“Jesus is mine;”
Then at last in glory, brother,—joy shall be thine;
There is Love to keep you, brother,—love that is divine
If you heed the Spirit’s voice, and come at the call. [Refrain]
