Only a step to the Savior,
Sinners, why tarry so long?
Only a step; He is waiting,
Come join the glorified throng.
Only a step, only a step,
Only a step to the crucified One;
Only a step to God’s only Son,
Only a step to Jesus.
Only a step; will you take it,
Out of the darkness to light?
Angels will carry the tidings,
If you receive Him tonight.
Only a step; come and take it,
Pillow your head on His breast;
He will, if only you’ll trust Him,
Give you sweet rest, happy rest.
Only a step; He is calling,
Prodigal children, come home.
Why will you tarry in darkness?
In Heav’n there’s rest and there’s room.
