1 Will you turn away from sin?
Will you come?
And a better life begin?
Will you come?
All your sinfulness confessing,
Give him ev’ry care oppressing,
Come and seek a Savior’s blessing,
Will you come?

Chorus:
Come to Jesus, come today!
Come, O come, no more delay!
He is calling, calling! now obey!
Will you come?
Will you come?

2 Let my Savior be your Friend,
Will you come?
Take the gladness he will send,
Will you come?
Take his love so true and tender,
Let him be your strong Defender,
Make a full and glad surrender,
Will you come? [Chorus]

3 Will you trust Him? he is strong,
Will you come?
He will save your soul form wrong,
Will you come?
Will you let him walk beside you,
He will comfort, he will guide you,
And no evil shall betide you,
Will you come? [Chorus]
