1 The Savior calls, the Spirit pleads,
O lost one, where art thou?
Without a home, without a friend
To still thy throbbing brow.

Where, where art thou?
The feast is ready now;
There’s room at the banquet and welcome for all,
But where, where art thou?

2 The Savior calls, the Spirit pleads,
And wilt thou yet delay?
O haste to make thy peace with God,
Nor trust another day. [Chorus]

3 The Savior calls, the Spirit pleads,
The clanging bells of time,
Are ringing ever in thine ear
The sad and plaintive chime. [Chorus]

4 Thou standest on a fearful brink,
Be warned, thy danger see!
A breath may launch thy trembling soul
On life’s eternity! [Chorus]
