O hear the Gospel call today;
It is the message of God’s love;
O heed it now without delay,
And gain a home of peace above.


O hear the call! O hear the call!
The Holy Spirit pleads today;
O why not hear His loving call,
He paid the debt we could not pay.

O hear the Gospel call today!
It tells how Jesus died to save;
Yes, all the debt we owe to pay,
And all the road to Heaven pave.


O hear the Gospel call today!
It is the old, old story told
Of death and hell and judgment day,
One God, one Shepherd, and His fold.
