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.
