Tullius C. O’Kane


If you from the Savior have wandered away,
Return to Him quickly, O do not delay;
Let doubt and delusion no longer deceive,
But come as a sinner, repent and believe.


O brother, repent and believe on the Son,
A perfect salvation thro’ Him to receive;
Repent and believe on the Crucified One;
For life is for all who on Him will believe.

Believe in His Gospel, believe in His name;
Believe that He suffered your soul to reclaim;
His love and compassion you cannot conceive,
If you with contrition will come and believe.


Believe in His promise that never will fail;
Believe that forever His love will prevail;
Believe that He cometh his own to receive,
O come to the Savior, repent and believe.
