Sacred Songs and Solos Lyrics
Hymn No.1168

First Line: Careless soul, thy Saviour sees thee,

Careless soul, thy Saviour sees thee;
Don't hold back !
Yearns till from thy thrall He frees thee
Don't hold back !
Sin, long cherished, claims and shames thee,
When aroused, thy conscience blames thee,
Thou art lost till Christ reclaims thee
Don't hold back !

2 Anxious soul, thy Saviour knows thee;
Should temptation still oppose thee;
Death, delayed, will soon o'ertake thee,
Then, when earthly friends forsake thee,
None but Christ to heaven can take thee ;
Don't hold back !

3 Stricken soul, thy Saviour calls thee;
Though thy guilty fear appals thee;
Now the Lord of life has found thee,
He will break the chains that bound thee,
With the arms of love surround thee ;
Don't hold back !

4 Pardoned soul, thy Saviour woos thee;
In His service He would use thee;
Though the hosts of hell assail thee,
His protection ne'er shall fail thee,
Till as victor heaven shall hail thee;
Don't hold back !

5 Ransomed soul, thy Saviour heeds thee;
When to pastures green He leads thee;
Onward, upward, He will guide thee,
Every needful good provide thee,
Keeping ever close beside thee ;
Don't hold back !

6 Gracious soul, thy Saviour owns thee;
Till, triumphant, He enthrones thee;
Death's dark stream may lie before thee,
Angel guards are watching o'er thee ;
Loved ones, glorified, call for thee;
Don't hold back !

7 Happy soul, thy Saviour loves thee,
And when He in mercy proves thee ;
He to save and sanctify thee
Grace for grace will not deny thee;
When He comes to glorify thee,
Don't hold back !
