|Almost,| but Lost.
|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.|
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;
Oh, wand'rer, come!
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!
P. P. Bliss.
