Representative Text

1 List! sinner, the voice of thy Savior is heard,
Attend and reject not His plea;
He asks for thy heart, now believe on His word,
He offers sweet pardon to thee.

Come home, come home,
Come, trust in a Savior’s love;
Come home, weary one, come home,
Come home to that land above.

2 Why linger in darkness and danger so long?
The day of salvation is near;
Come, all ye that labor, His love is so strong,
That all His sweet promise may share. [Refrain]

3 Full long has the burden of sin weighed thee down,
O, hasten to Calvary’s side;
See, there on the cross He has purchased thy crown,
A ransom for sinners has died. [Refrain]

4 Despised and rejected, at length He may leave,
His Spirit no longer may strive;
His mercy and pardon, oh, wilt thou receive?
’Twill peace to thy soul quickly give. [Refrain]
