1 Still saying No to Jesus!
Still you reject His voice;
Still, while the years are passing,
Still making sin your choice.

Chorus:
Still saying No!
Still saying No!
Soon from your heart the Savior will go;
Still saying No!
Still saying No!
Jesus is pleading—but you are still saying No!

2 Still saying No to Jesus!
Still you refuse His love;
Slighting the Holy Spirit,
Grieving the wooing Dove. [Chorus]

3 Still saying No to Jesus!
Still, while in youth and pow’r
Spurning this great salvation,
Wasting each precious hour. [Chorus]

4 Still saying No to Jesus!
Still, tho’ the locks are gray,
Still while the years are fleeting,
Never an hour to pray. [Chorus]

5 Still saying No to Jesus!
Drawing your latest breath,
Still, you reject His mercy,
E’en in the hour of death. [Chorus]
