Representative Text

1 The Saviour has died to redeem you,
To pardon He shows you the way;
With tender compassion He loves you:
Oh, will you not love Him today?

Yield to Him now,
Oh, yield to Him now,
While still He is calling today!
Yield to Him now,
Oh, yield to Him now,
Oh, will you not yield while you may?

2 The Spirit is tenderly pleading,
He waits to give strength in the way;
He pleads with you now to be yielding:
Oh, will you not heed Him today? [Refrain]

3 Then hasten, for time is fast speeding,
There’s hope only promised today;
Tomorrow His grace may be ending:
Oh, will you not take Him today? [Refrain]

4 Yield now to the Saviour who loves you,
For how can you longer delay?
He patiently waits to receive you:
Oh, will you not trust Him today? [Refrain]
