John R. Sweney (1837–1899)


When in the morn of life,
Jesus will save you;
When in the storm and strife,
Jesus will save you.
Though in the path of sin,
Long thou hast wan­dered,
Though thou hast slight­ed Him,
Love is not sun­dered.


Come, sin­ner, come to­day,
Jesus will save you;
There is no oth­er way,
Let Je­sus save you.

When in thy man­hood days,
Jesus will save you;
When thou hast trod earth’s maze,
Jesus will save you.
Though from His heart of love
Long thou hast lin­gered,
Though bless­ings from above
Long thou hast hin­dered.


Then e’er thy life is done,
Jesus will save you;
When death has al­most come,
Jesus will save you.
But sin­ner, come to­day,
While He is call­ing;
Seek now the nar­row way
While He is call­ing.
