Representative Text

1 Why do you wander in darkness away?
Jesus tenderly calls you;
Mercy he offers, why longer delay?
Jesus tenderly calls.

Seek ye the Lord,
While he may be found;
Call ye upon him,
While he is near.

2 Come, from the fetters of evil be free,
Jesus tenderly calls you;
Come, for the Master is seeking for thee,
Jesus tenderly calls. [Refrain]

3 Come, and for pardon and cleansing believe,
Jesus tenderly calls you;
Give him the service he waits to receive,
Jesus tenderly calls. [Refrain]

4 Come, and receive of his riches untold,
Jesus tenderly calls you;
Come, for his love is more precious than gold,
Jesus tenderly calls. [Refrain]
