Representative Text

1. O wandering souls, why will you roam
Away from God, away from home;
The Savior calls, O hear Him say,
Whoever will may come today.

Whoever will, whoever will,
Whoever will may come today;
Whoever will may come today,
And drink of the water of life.

2. Behold His hands extended now,
The dews of night are on His brow;
He knocks, He calls, He waiteth still,
Oh, come to Him, whoever will. [Refrain]

3. In simple faith His Word believe,
And His abundant grace receive;
No love like His the heart can fill,
Oh, come to Him, whoever will. [Refrain]

4. The Spirit and the Bride say, Come!
And find in Him sweet rest, and home;
Let Him that heareth, echo still,
The blessèd whosoever will. [Refrain]
