1 The Savior is calling the wanderer home;
O come to Him now, yes, come to Him now;
O why wilt thou tarry when Jesus says come?
The Savior is calling thee now.

Chorus:
O come to Him now, yes, come to Him now,
Return to the Lord, at His feet humbly bow;
He waits to be gracious, He longs to forgive,
Now Jesus is tenderly calling.

2 The Savior is calling; fly, fly to His breast,
O come to Him now, yes, come to Him now;
Lay down ev’ry burden, accept His sweet rest,
For Jesus is calling thee now. [Chorus]

3 The Savior is calling; O hear His kind voice,
O come to Him now, yes, come to Him now;
Believe the glad message, thy soul shall rejoice,
For Jesus is calling thee now. [Chorus]

4 Come home to the Savior, come just as thou art;
O come to Him now, yes, come to Him now;
O come with a broken and penitent heart,
For Jesus is calling thee now. [Chorus]
