1 Turn thee, O lost one, care-worn and weary,
Lo! The Good Shepherd is pleading today;
Seeking to save thee waiting to cleanse thee:
Haste to receive Him— no longer delay.
Tenderly calling, patiently pleading,
Hear the Good Shepherd calling to thee;
Tenderly pleading, patiently calling,
Lovingly saying, “Come unto Me!”
2 Still He is waiting: why wilt thou perish?
Tho’ thou hast wandered so far from the fold—
Yet with His life-blood He has redeem’d thee.
Wondrous compassion that cannot be told! [Refrain]
3 List to His message, think of His mercy!
Sinless, yet bearing thy sins on the tree;
Perfect remission, life everlasting,
Thro’ His atonement He offers to thee. [Refrain]
4 Come in the old way, come in the true way,
Enter through Jesus, for He is the Door;
He is the Shepherd, tenderly calling.
Come in thy weakness and wander no more. [Refrain]
