Lyrics

Verse 1
“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.”

Verse 2
“Almost persuaded,”
Come, come to-day;
“Almost persuaded,”
Turn not away;
Jesus invites you here,
Angels are lingering near,
Pray’rs rise from hearts so dear:
O wand’rer come.

Verse 3
“Almost persuaded,”
Harvest is past;
“Almost persuaded,”
Doom comes at last;
“Almost” can not avail;
“Almost” is but to fail;
Sad, sad, that bitter wail–
“Almost–but lost!”
