1 “Jesus is waiting,” patiently still,
Waiting that heav’n with sinners may fill;
Washed in His blood they’re fast pressing in,
Leaving you still in darkness and sin.
Waiting for you, yes; waiting for you
Others have come, but why have not you?
Oh, you’d not linger if you but knew
Jesus is waiting, waiting for you.
2 Loved ones are waiting; think of the tears
Shed over you with anguish and fears,
Think of their cry, as once more they pray,
Lord, save them now while still it is day. [Chorus]
3 Hell, too, is waiting; O sinner, think,
You are now standing just on the brink;
Only one step, the line may be crossed,
Only one step, then forever lost. [Chorus]
4 “Jesus is waiting,” hear it again;
Keep Him no longer waiting in vain;
Once more He calls you; once more we say,
“Jesus is waiting,” come while you may. [Chorus]
