1 The Son of God has died for thee
On Calv’ry’s cruel tree,
Salvation may be thine today,
Then turn Him not way.

Refrain:
Oh, turn from sin and let Him in—
Redeemer, Lord and King;
His death for thee on Calv’ry’s tree,
Will full salvation bring.

2 He bids thee turn from all thy sin
And let Him enter in,
Confess thy failures one by one
And ev’ry evil shun. [Refrain]

3 ‘Tis all He says, ‘tis all He pleads,
‘Twill meet a sinner’s needs,
Thy sin confess salvation take,
Iniquity forsake. [Refrain]

4 Be not afraid, but trust Him now,
And in repentance bow;
He took thy place and died for thee,
And made salvation free. [Refrain]
