Representative Text

1 Love divine, all love exceeding,
Calls unto your heart today,
‘Tis the love of Jesus pleading,
Come and live, O why delay?

‘Tis the love of Jesus calling,
While He pleads do not delay;
He’s the one, and only Saviour,
You may make Him yours today.

2 Jesus offers life eternal
Unto you, so far astray;
Peace is yours and joy supernal,
If you come, O why delay? [Refrain]

3 This the day is of salvation,
Do not sin the time away;
Hear today the invitation;
Danger lies in your delay. [Refrain]

4 Why not seek the Saviour’s blessing?
He will make your pathway bright,
Come and all your sins confessing,
He will lead you to the light. [Refrain]
