1 O why tarry longer, my brother?
The Master is calling today.
Long years he has patiently waited,
O come to him now while you may.

O why tarry longer?
The Master is calling you now.
Quickly believe and pardon receive,
Be saved while before him you bow.

2 Why longer refuse offer'd mercy?
You now may salvation receive.
God's Spirit it tenderly pleading,
Be saved as in him you believe. [Chorus]

3 O look unto Christ for salvation,
For you he was nailed to the tree.
His arms are outstretched to receive you,
Forgiveness is yours full and free. [Chorus]

4 The Saviour is waiting to bless you,
His favor so gracious to give.
O look unto man's only refuge,
O look unto Jesus and live. [Chorus]
