Jesus is Calling

Another poem from "Echoes of Eternity" by Michael R Abbott; used with permission.

Jesus is Calling

Why do you sit by the highway today,
Begging for silver and gold?
The Prince of All Glory is passing this way
And He'll give you treasures untold.

Sin-stained, lonely and poor,
Lost in the darkness of night;
Jesus can open your eyes,
Flooding your soul with His light.

Why are you dressed in the rags of your sin?
New raiment the Lord will Provide:
Clothed in His righteousness, new life begins;
To purchase these garments He died.

Sin-stained, lonely and poor,
Lost in the darkness of night;
Jesus can open your eyes,
Flooding your soul with His light.

Why are you blind to God's glory and grace?
Jesus is calling to you.
He'll open your eyes, you may gaze on His face;
The promise is faithful and true.

Sin-stained, lonely and poor,
Lost in the darkness of night;
Jesus can open your eyes,
Flooding your soul with His light.

So rise at His bidding and make no delay,
Jesus the Saviour is near.
Cry out for mercy and pardon today;
He'll heal you and cast out your fear.

Sin-stained, lonely and poor,
Lost in the darkness of night;
Jesus can open your eyes,
Flooding your soul with His light.
