Come, O come to the bless­èd Sav­ior.
List, O list to His lov­ing call.
Offering par­don, par­don from sin to all;
O come, He gives par­don from sin to all, to all.


Come, come to Je­sus,
Come ere this mo­ment takes flight;
It may be now some­one’s last call, last call to­night.

Deep, deep, deep in the heart there whis­pers
God’s own voice to each way­ward child;
Heed it! O heed it! Be no more sin be­guiled,
O heed His voice, be now no more be­guiled, be­guiled.


Long, long, long have you tried to sti­fle
Yearnings sweet to a life more pure;
Quench them no longer, but in God rest se­cure;
O strive no more, but in God rest se­cure, se­cure.


Now, now, now as the Spi­rit stirs you,
Harden not your fast melt­ing heart;
Take, take sal­va­tion, else shall your chance de­part;
O take it now, else shall your chance dep­art, de­part.
