171. Jesus Is Calling

1 Jesus is tenderly calling thee home -
Calling today, calling today;
Why from the sunshine of love wilt thou roam
Farther and farther away.

Calling today,
Calling today,
Jesus is calling,
Is tenderly calling today.

2 Jesus is calling the weary to rest -
Calling today, calling today;
Bring Him thy burden and thou shalt be blest -
He will not turn thee away. [Refrain]

3 Jesus is waiting, O come to Him now -
Waiting today, waiting today;
Come with thy sins, at His feet lowly bow -
Come, and no longer delay. [Refrain]

4 Jesus is pleading, O list to His voice -
Hear Him today, hear Him today;
They who believe on His name shall rejoice -
Quickly arise and away. [Refrain]
