Why Will You Roam


Why will you roam far from your home,
Over the dark mountain’s brow?
Why will you die? Jesus is nigh.
Waiting to save you now.

Refrain:
Waiting, he’s waiting,
Grieve him no more away:
Waiting, waiting.
Why will you longer stay?

Come as you are, burdened with care,
Lonely and sorrow-oppressed;
Why do you fear? Jesus is here,
Waiting to give you rest. [Refrain]

Grace if you spurn where will you turn?
What will become of your soul?
Haste while you may, do not delay,
Jesus will make you whole. [Refrain]

Waiting he stands, reaching his hands,
Freely his blessing to give;
Only believe, ask and receive,
Look unto him and live. [Refrain]
