Hear the voice of Je­sus plead­ing,
With His Fa­ther in­ter­ced­ing;
Can you still His love un­heed­ing,
Turn from Him who died for you?


O be­lieve Him, O be­lieve Him,
In your heart with joy re­ceive Him;
Oh, how can you slight and grieve Him,
When He gave His life for you?

Come to Je­sus, hum­bly kneel­ing;
May His voice like mu­sic steal­ing,
Touch with­in some bur­ied feel­ing,
While again it pleads for you.


Oh, ye weary, faint and dy­ing,
Who for rest are vain­ly sigh­ing,
Linger not, the hours are fly­ing;
Look to Him who died for you.


Hear the bless­èd proc­la­ma­tion,
Precious words of con­so­la­tion
Pardon, life and full sal­va­tion
Jesus of­fers now to you.
