Representative Text

1 Soul bending low under sin and despair,
Lonely and comfortless too;—
Ready your burden to lovingly share,
Jesus is waiting for you, for you.

Refrain:
Waiting for you, waiting for you,
Ready your courage and strength to renew;
Longing to comfort your heart with His love,
Yes, Jesus is waiting for you.

2 Soul lost in darkness, and weary of sin,
Fearing the foes that persue;—
Ready to help you anew to begin,
Jesus is waiting for you, for you. [Refrain]

3 Brother forsaken by loved ones of earth,
Still there is one who is true;—
Ready to prove at this moment His worth,
Jesus is waiting for you, for you. [Refrain]

4 Come to the arms of His mercy and live,
Let Him your courage renew;—
Ready to save you, your sins to forgive,
Jesus is waiting for you, for you. [Refrain]
