Oh, come to the Savior, His arms are extended,
Oh, come to the Savior so loving and true;
Behold, He is calling in tender compassion,
O brother, the Savior is calling for you.

Refrain

Calling for you, calling for you,
Brother, the Savior is calling for you,
Calling, calling,
Brother, the Savior is calling for you.

Oh, come to the Savior, for why will you wander?
This world and its pleasures no longer pursue;
Again He is calling: how can you reject Him?
O brother, the Savior is calling for you.

Refrain

Away to the fountain, the life giving fountain,
Its soul cheering waters your strength will renew;
Then come while the day beams of mercy are shining,
O brother, the Savior is calling for you.

Refrain

Away, for the shadows of night are approaching,
Then lose not His blessings that fall like the dew;
Still, still He is waiting and tenderly calling,
O brother, the Savior is calling for you.

Refrain
