God is call­ing you to­day,
Will you not the call obey?
Come and in His love con­fide,
Mercy’s door is ope­n wide.


Yes, I come, my God to Thee,
Mercy is my on­ly plea;
Saved by grace thro’ love di­vine,
I am now a child of Thine.

God is call­ing you to­day,
From your sins to turn away;
And from every id­ol part,
Loving Him with all your heart.


God is call­ing you today,
Whispers soft­ly, Why de­lay?
Hasten to the mer­cy seat,
Here He waits your soul to greet.


God is call­ing you to­day,
Calling, sin­ner, night and day;
Come by faith, His grace im­plore,
Saved from guilt to sin no more.
