Lyrics

Oh, sinner, turn to Jesus now,
No longer make delay;
Since Jesus died on Calvary,
And opened up the way.

Refrain

Oh won’t you come to Jesus, be saved today,
He’s earnestly pleading for all;
The time will come when ’twill be too late,
Too late to answer the call.

The invitation is to you,
Oh, come without delay;
While Jesus pleads so tenderly,
Now won’t you come today?

Refrain

The Lord has been so good to you,
And saved you from all harm;
But still He says, My Spirit shall
Not always strive with man.

Refrain

The time will come, when Christ will say,
Your days on earth are o’er;
When you are doomed and cast away,
You’ll hear My voice no more.
