Lyrics

Jesus is calling, calling, calling,
Jesus is calling today;
Why should I linger, linger, linger,
I will arise and away.

Refrain

They are so happy, happy, happy,
Who do their Savior obey;
Why should I linger, linger, linger?
I will arise and away.

Jesus is pleading, pleading, pleading,
Why should I wander in sin;
While to His glory, glory, glory,
Glad He would welcome me in.

Refrain

Angels are watching, watching, watching,
Hoping that I will obey;
I will accept Him, love Him, serve Him,
Jesus, I’m coming today.

Refrain

Jesus is waiting, waiting, waiting,
Open now standeth the door;
Soon the night falleth, falleth, falleth,
Closed are the gates evermore.
