299. Almost Persuaded

1 “Almost persuaded” now to believe;
“Almost persuaded” Christ to receive:
Seems now some soul will say,
“Go, Spirit, go Thy way;
Some more convenient day
On Thee I’ll call.”

2 “Almost persuaded,” come, come today;
“Almost persuaded,” turn not away:
Jesus invites you here,
Angels are lingering near,
Prayers rise from hearts so dear,
O wanderer, come.

3 “Almost persuaded,” harvest is past!
“Almost persuaded,” doom comes at last!
“Almost” cannot avail,
“Almost” is but to fail!
Sad, sad, that bitter wail,
“Almost,” but lost!
