This hymn has a unique tune.


"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."


"Almost persuaded" come, come today;

"Almost persuaded," turn not away;

Jesus invites you here,

Angels are ling'ring near,

Prayers rise from hearts so dear;

O wand'rer come!


Oh, be persuaded! Christ never fails —

Oh, be persuaded! His blood avails —

Can save from every sin,

Cleanse you without, within —

Will you not let Him in?

Open the door!


"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!"


Be now persuaded, oh, sinner, hear!

Be now persuaded, Jesus is near;

His voice is pleading still,

Turn now with heart and will,

Peace will your spirit fill —

Oh, turn today!
