11383. Step Over The Line

1 Tho’ only a line, just a line intervenes
Between your salvation and you;
Your soul will be lost if the line is not crossed:
God’s Word to the sinner is true.

O won’t you step over? Step over it now,
Believing His Word to be true!
Come then, at the foot of the Cross humbly bow,
And let the dear Savior save you.

2 You may have gone far in the dark and the cold,
Like one in the wilderness lost;
But would you come back to the true Shepherd’s fold,
There’s only a line to be crossed. [Refrain]

3 You may have been drifting the world’s stormy main,
By billow and tempest been tossed;
But would you return to the home port again,
There’s only a line to be crossed. [Refrain]

4 Has sin sown the seed of despair in your soul?
O come without money or cost!
The Savior is waiting to say, Be thou whole;
There’s only a line to be crossed. [Refrain]
