1 Settle it now with the Savior,
Settle the question today;
While He so tenderly lingers,
Why should you longer delay?
Over your soul now His Spirit
Broods like a gentle dove;
Open your heart to receive Him;
Trust Him and know His love.

Settle with Jesus;
Settle the question today.
Say to Him, Jesus, receive me,
Take Thou my sins away.

2 Long has He sought you in mercy,
Long has He knocked at your door;
Will you again refuse Him,
Bid Him depart once more?
Look on His thorn scarrèd forehead,
Look at His wounded side!
See how your sins have bruised Him;
Yes, ’twas for you He died. [Refrain]

3 Why not give Him that burden,
Which you have borne so long?
You are so weak and weary,
He is so loving and strong.
Why with yourself be still striving,
Restless and ill at ease?
Jesus will teach you His secret,
Jesus will give you peace. [Refrain]

4 Now is the time accepted,
Now is salvation’s day;
See how life’s swift flying seasons
Gather and vanish away!
Fainter, still fainter, unheeded,
Echoes His yearning call;
Settle the question with Jesus,
Settle it, once for all. [Refrain]
