1 O sinner, God is calling thee,
Why canst thou not believe?
Hast thou not heard how Jesus came,
That all he might receive?
He lived and died, he rose again,
A ransom for us all;
He lives and reigns in glory now,
Will ye not heed his call?

Refrain:
The Spirit is calling thee,
Jesus is calling thee,
Heed their sweet song tonight;
The Spirit is calling thee,
Jesus is calling thee,
Heed their sweet song tonight.

2 “Come unto me, come unto me,”
Most precious words and true,
Christ’s message to a weary world,
Ah, sinner, it’s for you;
Accept the invitation now,
Receive it with a prayer;
Come, haste to seek supernal joys
And you his love shall share. [Refrain]

3 No other name, no other name,
Can cleanse your heart from sin;
No other door, no other door
Will ope to let you in;
The years are swiftly passing by,
Eternity’s at hand,
Come, step tonight within the door
That leads to glory land. [Refrain]
