Lyrics

Tell me, dear sinner, O tell me today,
Why do you wander in sin?
Come to the fold of the Savior of men,
Jesus will welcome you in.

Refrain

Tell me, dear sinner, I pray,
Why not make Jesus your choice?
Why not prepare for the great judgment day?
Angels above will rejoice.

Judgment is coming, is coming to all;
Sinner, why longer delay?
Come to the fold of the Savior of men,
Come to Him, sinner, today.

Refrain

Why do you linger, O sinner, today?
Jesus still knocks at thy heart;
Will you accept Him, believe and obey?
Will you from evil depart?
