O Why Do You Linger My Brother

O why do you linger, my brother?
O why do you still stay away?
For you a dear Saviour is waiting
To give you salvation today.

Why do you linger?
Why do you linger?
The Saviour is calling today;
O come and believe,
Free pardon receive,
And have all your sins washed away.

To save your poor soul He is yearning,
O come to Him now while you may;
His hand, stained with blood, holds our mercy,
O why not receive it today? [Refrain]

O careless one, great is your danger,
Around you are fetters of sin;
Escape to the only safe refuge,
And Jesus will welcome you in. [Refrain]

O wait not for further conviction,
But come to Him just as you are;
Look up thro’ the gloom and the darkness
To Jesus, the bright Morning Star. [Refrain]
