1. Why unbelieving? Why wilt thou spurn
Love that so gently pleads thy return?
Come, ere thy fleeting day
Fades into night away;
Now mercy’s call obey—to Jesus come.

2. Why unbelieving? Wounding thy Lord,
Grieving His Spirit, doubting His Word?
Think, ’twas for thee He died;
Think of His bleeding side;
Now to the crucified—to Jesus come.

3. Why unbelieving? Thou canst be blest;
Jesus will pardon, He’ll give thee rest.
Why wilt thou longer wait?
Haste to the open gate,
Come, ere it be too late—to Jesus come.

4. Why unbelieving? Trifle no more;
Death may be near thee, e’en at thy door.
Come with a broken heart,
Come, helpless as thou art,
Come, choose the better part—to Jesus come.
