Lo, a loving Friend is waiting,
He is calling thee;
Listen to His voice so tender,
“Come to Me.
“On the cross for thee I suffered,
Death I bore for thee,
Canst thou still refuse My mercy?
Trust to Me.
“Long hast thou been Satan’s captive,
I will set Thee free;
Then, rejoicing in thy freedom,
Many times has Jesus spoken,
Now He speaks again;
Shall Thy Savior’s invitation
Be in vain?
Soon that voice will cease its calling,
Wilt thou still delay?
Wait no longer, sin grows stronger,
Savior, I will wait no longer,
Now to Thee I come;
And when life’s short voyage is over,
Take me home.
