Representative Text

1 List, ‘tis the Saviour calling,
Come, come, come;
Softly His tones are falling,
Come, O come home.

O precious invitation!
Thy Svaiour bids thee come;
‘Tis Jesus,
‘Tis Jesus calling now,
Softly, gently,
Sinner, come home.

2 Hark, ‘tis the Saviour pleading,
Come to me;
Turn not away unheeding
His love to thee. [Refrain]

3 Come with thy weight of sorrow,
Haste away;
Wait not until the morrow,
Come, come today. [Refrain]

4 Come, in thy heart believing,
He’ll forgive;
Light from the cross receiving,
Look, look and live. [Refrain]
