Hymn/Song Information

So near to the Kingdom yet what dost




So near to the kingdom!
yet what dost thou lack?
So near to the kingdom!
what keepeth thee back?
Renounce every idol,
tho’ dear it may be,
And come to the Savior
now pleading with thee.

Pleading with thee,
The Savior is pleading,
Is pleading with thee.



So near that thou hearest
the songs that resound
From those who, believing,
a pardon have found!
So near, yet unwilling
to give up thy sin,
When Jesus is waiting
to welcome thee in!

Pleading with thee,
The Savior is pleading,
Is pleading with thee.



O come; soon thy season
of grace may be past,
The door may be closed,
and this call be thy last;
O where wouldst thou turn
if the light should depart
That comes from the Spirit,
and shines on thy heart?

Pleading with thee,
The Savior is pleading,
Is pleading with thee.



To die with no hope!
hast thou counted the cost?
To die out of Christ,
and thy soul to be lost!
So near to the kingdom!
O come, we implore,
While Jesus is pleading,
come enter the Door.

Pleading with thee,
The Savior is pleading,
Is pleading with thee.
