Almost Persuaded Now To Believe


"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 I'll call."

"Almost persuaded," come, come today,
"Almost persuaded," turn not away;
Jesus invites you here,
Angels are lingering near
Pray'rs rise from hearts so dear;
O wand'rer, come!

"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!
