Lyrics

Hear the voice of Jesus speaking to the soul,
In His blood so precious He can make you whole;
He is kindly waiting for you to come in,
While the fount is open, won’t you step within?

Refrain

Won’t you step within? O won’t you step within?
While the fount is open, won’t you step within?

In the ways of Satan you so long have trod;
Turn your back upon him—put your trust in God;
Christ the mighty conqueror now will help you win;
While the fount is open, won’t you step within?

Refrain

Do not longer linger on the verge of woe,
While the Lord is beckoning, gladly to Him go;
He will surely save you from the maze of sin;
While the fount is open, won’t you step within?
