1 The Saviour is calling He calls you today,
In accents of tenderest love;
Delay not, but hasten His call to obey,
O hear the sweet voice from above!
Today He is waiting to save you from sin,
To the fold of His love enter, enter in.
Today He is waiting, to save you from sin
To the fold of His love enter in.

2 He knows the temptations and snares that beset
Young pilgrims on life’s weary road;
He trod the same path, and He will not forget,
The children for whom His blood flow’d.
On Calvary’s mountain, their pardon to win,
To the fold of His love enter, enter in.
On Calvary’s mountain, their pardon to win,
To the fold of His love enter in.

3 O come with rejoicing today while He stands,
Saying, seek, seek ye early for Me,
Peace, pardon, and blessing receive from His hands,
Salvation so full and so free.
Come all—there is no one too young to begin,
To the fold of His love enter, enter in.
Come all—there is no one too young to begin,
To the fold of His love enter in.

4 The angels rejoice in that heavenly place,
Where those who repent are forgiven;
And Jesus has said in the word of His grace,
“Of such is the Kingdom of Heav’n.”
Then come to the Saviour, He calls you from sin,
To the fold of His love enter, enter in.
Then come to the Saviour, He calls you from sin,
To the fold of His love enter in.
