Representative Text

1 Won’t you come now and give all to the Savior?
Long He has waiting to gain full control;
You need His life and the gift of His favor,
You need His love as the light of your soul.

Refrain:
Won’t you come now, O won’t you come now?
Jesus is tenderly calling you;
Won’t you come now, O won’t you come now?
Jesus is calling, calling for you.

2 Won’t you come now and give all to the Savior?
Some day no longer His voice you will hear;
Trembling you’ll stand in the court of God’s justice,
Calling in vain for a friend to appear. [Refrain]

3 Won’t you come now and give all to the Savior?
Have you not felt the vain glory of life,
Spending its moments in search of contentment,
Feeling the pangs of its sorrow and strife? [Refrain]

4 Won’t you come now and give all to the Savior?
Only His blood all your sin can remove;
If you believe, He is willing and able,
Ready His grace and His mercy to prove. [Refrain]
