Jesus Lingers StillBy W. Lawrence (1868-1942)
Meter: 10.7.10.7. Chorus 188.8.131.52.
Jesus lingers still, 'tis for you He waits,
And He's waited for you long;
He waits that heav'n, with its fadeless joy,
May yet to you belong.
Come and welcome, welcome whosoever will,
'Tis the Savior's gracious call;
He is able, willing, waiting now to save;
Simply trust Him, that is all.
Though your wayward feet have wandered far,
And you're deeply sunk in sin,
Yet in patient grace now the Savior waits
Your weary heart to win.
Though His gracious call you have oft refused,
And He's sought your trust in vain,
Yet with love unchanged by cold neglect
He is seeking you again.
O surrender now, yield to love divine,
Jesus lingers for you still;
While in grace He says, Come unto Me
Let your answer be, I will!
