Jesus is pleading with my poor soul,
Shall I be saved tonight?
If I believe, He will make me whole,
Shall I be saved tonight?
Tenderly, sadly, I hear Him say,
How can you grieve Me from day to day?
Shall I go on in the old, old way,
Or shall I be saved tonight?

Jesus was nailed to the cross for me,
Shall I be saved tonight?
How can my heart so ungrateful be?
Shall I be saved tonight?
Now He will save me by grace divine.
Now, if I will, I can call Him mine.
Can I the pleasures of earth resign?
Oh shall I be saved tonight?

Jesus is knocking at my poor heart,
Shall I be saved tonight?
What if His Spirit should now depart?
Shall I be saved tonight?
Over and over His voice I hear,
Sweetly it falls on my listening ear,
Shall I reject Him, a friend so dear?
Oh shall I be saved tonight?

What if that voice I should hear no more,
Shall I be saved tonight?
Quickly I’ll open this bolted door.
Save me, O Lord, tonight.
Blessèd Redeemer, come in, come in,
pity my sorrow, forgive my sin.
Now let Thy work in my soul begin,
For I will be saved tonight.
