Lyrics

When the world no longer charms you,
And your soul for safety yearns,
When the tears have wet your pillow,
And your heart to Jesus turns,
Do you know the Savior’s waiting,
Asking that your will may bow?
He is waiting for your answer,
Give, O give it to Him now!

Refrain

He is waiting for your answer,
He is waiting for your answer,
Give it ere it is too late,
Do not let Him longer wait;
He is waiting for your answer,
He is waiting for your answer,
He is waiting for your answer,
Give, O give it to Him now!

Had you listened ere sin bound you,
Easier far it would have been;
Chains of appetite or habit
Could not now the victory win;
Still today He offers pardon,
Thro’ His blood’s life giving flow;
He is waiting for your answer,
Give, O give it to Him now!

Refrain

Give the answer while He lingers,
While His Spirit pleads with you;
Let it be, I now surrender
All to Thee, Thy will to do!

Leaving all of sin behind thee,
Catch a glimpse of Heav’n below;
He is waiting for your answer,
Give, O give it to Him now!
