61. Lo, a Loving Friend Is Waiting

Lo, a loving Friend is waiting,
He is calling thee;
Listen to His voice so tender,
"Come to Me."
Many times has Jesus spoken;
Now He speaks again.
Shall the Savior's invitation
Be in vain?
Soon that voice will cease its calling;
Wilt thou still delay?
Wait no longer, sin grows stronger,
Come today.
"Savior, I will wait no longer;
Now to Thee I come;
And when my short life is over,
Take me home."
