1 With outstretched hands and pleading tone,
The Saviour is calling for thee;
From Calv’ry’s cross, from yonder throne,
The Saviour is calling for thee.

Refrain:
Calling, calling,
The Saviour is calling for thee;
Calling, calling,
The Saviour is calling for thee.

2 From sins’ defilement, sin’s control,
The Saviour is calling for thee;
O yield to him thy blood-bought soul,
The Saviour is calling for thee. [Refrain]

3 By countless mercies, day by day,
The Saviour is calling for thee;
By trials sent along the way,
The Saviour is calling for thee. [Refrain]

4 He bids thee to a feast of love,
The Saviour is calling for thee;
To shining mansions built above,
The Saviour is calling for thee. [Refrain]

5 Then turn this moment, look and live!
The Saviour is calling for thee;
Full, everlasting life he’ll give,
The Saviour is calling for thee. [Refrain]
