Representative Text

1 There is One who long hath sought you,
Who would bless your needy soul,
Great salvation he hath brought you,
Freely He will make you whole.

He is calling—will you come?
He is calling—will you come?
Jesus loves you, He will save you,
He is calling—will you come?

2 There is One with love undying,
Who Himself for sinners gave,
And upon that love relying,
You shall find Him strong to save. [Chorus]

3 O the depths of love unsounded,
It can reach the deepest woe;
Will you take that love unbounded,
All its blessedness to know? [Chorus]

4 Jesus calls you, hear and heed Him,
From His love turn not away,
He is calling, O you need Him,
Come to Jesus—come today. [Chorus]
