Full Text

1 Tenderly, graciously Jesus inviteth thee,
“Come unto me and find rest.”
Pleads He so lovingly, waits He so patiently,
Offers thee all that is best.

Refrain:
Jesus is calling thee—
List to His voice,
Jesus is calling thee—
Make Him your choice,
Jesus is calling thee—
Bids thee rejoice,
Jesus is calling thee now.

2 Paid He the price for thy soul on Mount Calvary,
Pierced His hands and His side;
Willingly, freely He suffered such agony,
Bid Him come in to abide. [Refrain]

3 Turn not away while the Spirit is calling thee,
Open to Him thy heart’s door;
Bid Him to enter and cleanse thy heart thoroughly,
Free thee from guilt evermore. [Refrain]

4 List to His voice, He has called thee repeatedly,
Break from the chains that enthrall;
Grieve not the Spirit lest He should depart from thee,
Never again on thee call. [Refrain]
