Representative Text

1 Not far from the kingdom, O words of the Lord,
How deeply impressive they come from His word,
He spoke them so kindly, He speaks them today,
The narrow gate is open, we can still hear Him say.

Chorus:
Not far, O soul,
'Tis not far from the kingdom,
What keeps thee away,
Come, O come to thy Lord,
O believe on His word.
He is calling gently calling, will you come, come today.

2 Not far from the kingdom, make haste to receive,
Thy pardon He offers to those who believe,
From love's tender pleading what keeps you away,
The Saviour now is calling, we can still hear him say. [Chorus]

3 Not far from the kingdom, where all may prepare,
Bright mansions of glory, with Jesus to share,
Not far from the kingdom, O come while you may,
The Saviour now is waiting, we can still hear Him say. [Chorus]
