Almost Persuaded

Almost persuaded” now to believe;
Almost persuaded” Christ to receive;
Seems now some soul to say,
Go, Spirit, go Thy way,
Some more convenient day
On Thee I’ll call.”Almost persuaded,” come, come today;
Almost persuaded,” turn not away;
Jesus invites you here,
Angels are lingering near
Prayers rise from hearts so dear;
O wanderer, come!


Almost persuaded,” harvest is past!
Almost persuaded,” doom comes at last!
Almost” cannot avail;
Almost” is but to fail!
Sad, sad, that bitter wail
Almost,” but lost!
