1 There’s a voice soft and gentle; ‘tis calling today,
Will you come? Will you come?
‘Tis the voice of the Lord, hear Him tenderly say:
Will you come? Will you come?

Refrain:
Will you come? Will you come?
Will you come? Will you come?
“Whosoever is willing,” O hear Jesus say,
“Whosoever is willing,” is welcome today;
Will you come? Will you come?
Will you come? O will you come?

2 Will you come to the fountain once opened for sin,
Will you come? Will you come?
Will you yield to the Spirit who whispers within:
Will you come? Will you come? [Refrain]

3 Will you come to the pastures all sunny and fair,
Will you come? Will you come?
Will you follow the Shepherd, and trust in His care;
Will you come? Will you come? [Refrain]

4 Let His sweet invitation rebuke all your doubt,
Will you come? Will you come?
“Whoso cometh to me, I will never cast out.”
Will you come? Will you come? [Refrain]
