Representative Text

1 This is the season of hope and grace,
Jesus is passing by;
This for salvation the time and place,
Jesus is passing by.

Jesus is passing by,
Jesus is passing by.
Bring Him thy heart
ere in grief He depart;
Jesus is passing by.

2 This is the hour for the soul's release,
Jesus is passing by;
Trust Him and thou shalt go forth in peace,
Jesus is passing by. [Chorus]

3 This is the moment to seek the Lord,
While He is passing by;
This is the time to believe His word,
While He is passing by. [Chorus]

4 Trust in the Lord in this hour of need,
While He is passing by;
And you will find Him a friend indeed,
Jesus is passing by. [Chorus]
