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 ling’ring 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” cannot avail;
“Almost” is but to fail;
Sad, sad that bitter wail:
“Almost – but lost.”
