46 - Almost persuaded
1 „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 Iíll call.”
2 „Almost persuaded,” come, come today;
„Almost persuaded,” turn not away;
Jesus invites you here,
Angels are lingíring near,
Prayers rise from hearts so dear;
O wandírer, come!
3 „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!
