Representative Text

1. Trifle not your time away,
Come to Jesus, come today,
For tomorrow you may be
In a vast eternity.

Refrain
While with you the Spirit pleads,
While for you He intercedes,
Now the voice of love obey,
Come to Jesus, come today.

2. If you slight His offered grace
And refuse to seek His face,
Tho’ He linger at your heart,
You may grieve Him to depart. [Refrain]

3. Has the world the balm to heal
What your life perchance may feel?
Trust it not; no more delay,
Come to Jesus, come today. [Refrain]
