Full Text

1 You long have been living away from your God,
And sinning against the light.
You’ve traveled a rough and a dangerous road,
Come back to the Saviour tonight.

Refrain:
Come back to the Saviour tonight,
Come back to the Saviour tonight,
You’ve traveled a rough and a dangerous road,
Come back to the Saviour tonight.

2 You’ve wandered afar on the highway of sin,
Away from the pathway of right;
But Jesus is calling and bids you return,
Come back to the Saviour tonight. [Refrain]

3 E’en now you are nearing the dangerous ledge,
That hides the dark pit from your sight;
Turn back ere you find it forever too late,
Seek Jesus, and safety tonight. [Refrain]
