10.7.10.7. Chorus 11.7.11.7.


1
JESUS lingers still, 'tis for you He waits,
And He's waited for you long;
He waits that heav'n, with its fadeless joy,
May yet to you belong.
2
Though your wayward feet have wandered far,
And you're deeply sunk in sin,
Yet in patient grace now the Saviour waits
Your weary heart to win.
3
Though His gracious call you have oft refused,
And He's sought your trust in vain,
Yet with love unchanged by cold neglect
He is seeking you again.
4
O surrender now, yield to love divine,
Jesus lingers for you still;
While in grace He says, "Come unto Me,"
Let your answer be, I will!
Chorus
Come and welcome, welcome whosoever will,
'Tis the Saviour's gracious call;
He is able, willing, waiting now to save;
Simply trust Him, that is all.
