Jesus is pleading, oh, list to His voice;
Pleading with you to make Him your choice;
Seeking His love to your heart to make known;
Oh, will you accept Him? Oh, will you come home?

Refrain

Jesus says, Come;
Give Him your burdens, you shall be free;
Jesus says, Come,
O, weary one, come to Me.

Jesus is waiting this moment for you;
He is a friend almighty and true;
Waiting to hear you say, Master, come in,
He’s waiting to cleanse you from all of your sin.

Refrain

Brother, has Jesus not spoken before?
Has He not often knocked at your door?
Do not refuse Him, but give Him His place,
Accept of His love, of His truth and His grace.

Refrain

Now while we’re praying, and while all is still,
Will you not yield to Jesus your will?
List, He is pleading, oh, is it in vain
That He has been calling again and again?

Refrain
