Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet.

Representative Text

1 O sinner, your Saviour now waiting stands
He points to his side and his wounded hands,
And offers you pardon for all your sin,
Just now if you’ll let him he’ll cleanse you within.

Refrain:
Then list! ‘tis Jesus’ voice,
He bids you make him your choice,
He’s watching, and waiting,
He’s calling you, “Come, in me find a refuge
In heav’n find a home.”

2 Your pardon he purchased on Calvary,
His blood was shed to set you free;
Then tarry no longer, but haste away
From endless darkness to endless day. [Refrain]

3 Still watching and waiting! behold your Lord;
Oh! rest your salvation upon his word;
He’s willing to save you, oh! come today,
Withstand him no longer, lest he turn away. [Refrain]
