On a desert bleak and dreary,
Dost thou wander sad and lone?
Hear the Savior calling, calling,
“Child of want and woe, come home.”
He is calling, calling ever,
Calling tenderly to thee,
“I’ll forsake thee never, never,
Weary wand’rer, come to me.”
Art thou doubting? doubt no longer,
For the word of God is sure;
Jesus came to save the sinful,
he will cleanse and make thee pure.
Do the world’s delights entice thee?
Greater joys in Christ abound;
Does the love of earth invite thee,
Perfect love in Him is found.
Wait no longer, life is fleeting,
Thou hast only this today;
Time is precious; oh, to Jesus
Give thyself without delay.
