Representative Text

1 What hinders your coming to Jesus,
What hinders your coming today?
He offers His grace and His pardon,
Tell Jesus what stands in the way.

Chorus:
What is it that hinders your coming?
You may find this salvation today;
The Saviour is ready and waiting,
O why do you longer delay?

2 If pleasures and earthly enjoyment
Have hindered your coming before,
O tarry no longer but prove Him,
Who offers you joy evermore. [Chorus]

3 The fearful, the troubled and doubting,
May lovingly lean on His breast;
O trust Him who offers salvation,
Come now to His arms and be blest. [Chorus]

4 What hinders your coming to Jesus?
The fear that you may not hold out?
His mercy endureth forever,
O how can you linger in doubt? [Chorus]
