Product Description

Bob Latham wrote a terrific song lyric that does not pull any punches and is strongly in the tradition of revivial songs of the early 20th century. It is fitting then, that these words are married with music that could easily have been from that period.

This song is presented in SATB format with two parts per staff, hymnal-style, so is easily adapted to choir, quartet, or congregational singing.


There are those whose journey is long,
Who at the outset are weak, not strong;
Each day's a struggle because of past sin,
But Jesus says, come enter in.
He came to earth to die you see.
Because of His love He can set you free.
He paid the price we could not pay.
Please don't wait another day.

Unlike the world, He came with love
To provide a home in heaven above.
He is a God of righteousness.
He gave His life to save all of us.
Will you call on Him, accept His grace,
He who died to take our place?
He says repent and turn to Him.
Call on Jesus to forgive your sin.

So bow your heart and come today!
God's word says Jesus is the only way.
Jesus said He would make all things new,
He'll come into your life and change you, too!
Call on Jesus,
Cry out to Jesus,
He loves you so.
