1 Today the Redeemer is calling,
He offers his pardon and love,
He’s “able to keep you from falling,
Presenting you faultless” above.
How long will you keep Jesus waiting?
Today he commands you to choose;
He offers a perfect salvation,
And you must accept or refuse.
2 The world and its pleasures are pleading,
The tempter is making his claim,
But Jesus is now interceding,
And longing to call you by name. [Refrain]
3 Why linger in Satan’s dominions?
Your doubt and your waiting are vain,
Fear not to meet scorn and derision,
The Saviour will keep and sustain. [Refrain]
4 How soon will you make the decision?
Oh, what will you gain by delay?
While halting between two opinions,
Your life is fast passing away. [Refrain]
5 ‘Tis Jesus the Lord and Redeemer
Who asks you this moment to choose;
Be earnest, O trifler and dreamer!
A kingdom and crown you may lose. [Refrain]
