Representative Text

1 O sinner, why linger in doubt and dismay,
When Jesus is ready to save?
Accept His salvation, His calling obey,
For you His own life-blood He gave.

Yes, Jesus will pardon, His mercy is sure,
Come sinner, no longer delay;
Accept His salvation, His love so pure,
And Jesus will save you today.

2 Come, sinners, "why stand ye here idle all day?"
The Master is waiting for you;
Come enter the vineyard, why linger away?
Here you will find service to do. [Refrain]

3 Come brothers, why wait ye here, nothing to do,
While others a steady watch keep?
The fields are all whitened—the lab’rers are few,
The harvest is ready to reap. [Refrain]

4 Oh, sinner, why tarry the call to obey?
Persuaded, accepting, almost;
How sad if the death angel brook no delay,
So near to the kingdom, but lost. [Refrain]
