Representative Text

1 Weary with bearing your heavy burden,
Will you not lift to the Lord your cry?
Come and be saved, 'tis the day of mercy,
Jesus is passing by.

Passing by,
Passing by;
Will you not call on Him for mercy,
While He is passing by.

2 Dare you refuse His divine compassion?
Dare you His mercy and love defy?
Others are finding the great salvation,
While He is passing by. [Chorus]

3 "What wilt thou have me to do?" He's asking,
For He has heard your unspoken sigh;
Soon for each soul whom today He's calling,
Jesus will have passed by. [Chorus]
