Oh, sinner, come, do not delay,
But come to God, no longer stay;
Thy day of grace will soon be o’er,
When He shall plead with thee no more.


Oh, come, then, come, no longer stay,
But trust in God, His Word obey;
Accept His Son who died for thee,
And bought thy pardon full and free.

Oh, sinner, come, God waits for thee,
And offers pardon full and free;
So great His love, His Son He gave,
To bleed and die thy soul to save.


Oh, sinner, come, thou need’st not fear,
But Trust in Him, for He is near;
Yes, near to bless and save today,
Oh, haste to Him, the call obey.
