Only a step to Jesus (Seamans)

Representative Text

1. Only a step to Jesus,
He is the children's Friend;
Come in life's early morning
Now to his call attend.

Only a step, Only a step,
Why not take it now?
Come while he lovingly calls thee,
Humbly before him bow.

2. Only a step to Jesus,
Why do you stay away?
List to his tender pleading,
Come and be saved today. [Chorus]

3. Only a step to Jesus,
Nearer is he today,
Than he will be tomorrow;
Come to him while you may. [Chorus]

4. Only a step to Jesus,
Danger and death pursue,
He is our Rock and Refuge,
Come, he is calling you. [Chorus]
