Lyrics

When in the morn of life,
Jesus will save you;
When in the storm and strife,
Jesus will save you.
Though in the path of sin,
Long thou hast wandered,
Though thou hast slighted Him,
Love is not sundered.

Refrain

Come, sinner, come today,
Jesus will save you;
There is no other way,
Let Jesus save you.

When in thy manhood days,
Jesus will save you;
When thou hast trod earth’s maze,
Jesus will save you.
Though from His heart of love
Long thou has hast lingered,
Though blessings from above
Long thou has hindered.

Refrain

Then e’er thy life is done,
Jesus will save you;
When death has almost come,
Jesus will save you.
But sinner, come today,
While He is calling;
Seek now the narrow way
While He is calling.

Refrain
