1 O sinner, hear the Savior’s voice,
It bids thee come to Him today;
Make Him thy first and only choice,
And turn no more from Him away.

Sinner hear the Savior calling,
Calling today, calling today;
List unto His earnest pleading,
Turn not away, turn not away.

2 The Savior died on Calv’ry’s tree,
To ransom thee from death and sin;
O take salvation offered free,
Give Him thy heart and enter in. [Refrain]

3 Life’s silver cord one day will break,
And all earth’s trials will be o’er;
Then sinner, mayest thou awake,
Redeemed upon the other shore. [Refrain]
