1 Do you think, when you turn from your Saviour,
How little He asks you to do?
Just to come and confess and obey Him
After all He has given to you.

Refrain:
Won’t you come?
Won’t you come?
Won’t you come and confess and obey?
The time is so short for His service,
And no time is yours but today!

2 Do you think, when you turn from your Saviour,
How He grieves o’er your hardness and sin,
How long at your heart He’s been knocking,
And yet you will not let Him in? [Refrain]

3 Do you think, when you turn from your Saviour,
How He poured out His life-blood for you?
O story most wondrous and touching,
And you know that the story is true! [Refrain]

4 Do you think, when you turn from your Saviour,
Let me ask: have you counted the cost?
Tho’ you gain all of earth’s fleeting treasure,
If your soul in the end should be lost! [Refrain]
