Cheering Words

How sweet the cheering words,
"Whoever will" may come;
The door of mercy open stands,
As yet, there still is room.

'Tis the "accepted time."
The day of grace and love:
And God invites "whoever will"
His faithfulness to prove.

The Savior sits on high,
The proof that all is done;
And sinners, now, God can accept,
By virtue of His Son:

That Savior soon will rise,
And close the open door:
Then all who have refused to come,
Will hear of grace no more.

O God! to Thee we cry,
While Jesus still delays,
That Thou wouldst bring lost sinners nigh,
And save them by Thy grace.
"GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD, THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON, THAT WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH ON HIM SHOULD NOT PERISH, BUT HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE."
