1 "Return ye," saith the Savior,
To all who are astray;
"For I who have redeemed you
Would give you life today."

I come to Thee, my Savior,
Low at Thy feet I bow;
I’m trusting Thee for pardon,
Praise God! He saves me now.

2 "Return ye," saith the Savior,
Who died on Calvary’s tree;
"For you a feast is ready;
Taste of My love and see." [Refrain]

3 While in the far off country,
His loving voice I heard;
I came, and peace He gave me;
I’m saved, O praise the Lord. [Refrain]

4 Wilt thou not heed the call, friend?
God’s mercy pleads with thee;
And Christ Himself is waiting,
To set sin’s captive free. [Refrain]
