Oh come to the Savior, believe in His name,
And ask Him your heart to renew;
He waits to be gracious, O turn not away,
For now there is pardon for you.

Refrain

Yes, there is pardon for you,
Yes, there is pardon for you;
For Jesus has died to redeem you,
And offers full pardon to you.

The way of transgression that leads unto death,
Oh, why will you longer pursue?
How can you reject the sweet message of love
That offers full pardon for you?

Refrain

Be warned of your danger; escape to the cross;
Your only salvation is there;
Believe, and that moment the Spirit of grace
Will answer your penitent prayer.
