Lyrics

Jesus is calling,
Sinner, come home;
Tenderly pleading,
Why longer roam?
Hear Him, oh, hear Him say,
Long you have strayed away;
Come, then, oh, come today,
Sinner, come home.

Jesus is calling,
Will you not come?
Will you not enter
While there is room?
Sad, sad would be the fate
If it should prove too late;
Why will you longer wait?
Sinner, come home.

Jesus is calling,
Why still delay?
Life and salvation’s
Offered today;
Repentant, come, believe,
Do not the Spirit grieve,
You should His love receive;
Sinner, come home.
