Representative Text

1 Out on the cold barren mountains of sin
Jesus is looking, is looking for you;
Striving your heart and affections to win,
Jesus is looking for you.
Looking, looking,
With heart that is constant and true;
He came from his throne to claim you his own,
And now is looking for you.

2 For you so freely he suffered and died,
Jesus is pleading, is pleading for you;
Points to his hands and his spear-wounded side,
Jesus is pleading for you.
Pleading, pleading,
With heart that is constant and true;
He came from his throne to claim you his own,
And now is pleading for you.

3 Over and over with patience untold,
Jesus is calling, is calling for you;
Loving to gather you safe in his fold,
Jesus is calling for you.
Calling, calling,
With heart that is constant and true;
He came from his throne to claim you his own,
And now is calling for you.

4 Thro’ the night watches and all the day long,
Jesus is waiting, is waiting for you;
Never was love so enduring and strong,
Jesus is waiting for you.
Waiting, waiting,
With heart that is constant and true;
He came from his throne to claim you his own,
And now is waiting for you.

5 Gone to prepare you a robe and a crown,
Jesus is coming, is coming for you;
Safely to gather his loved and his own,
Jesus is coming for you.
Coming, coming,
With heart that is constant and true;
He came from his throne to claim you his own,
And now is coming for you.
