Christian lyrics with chords for guitar, banjo, mandolin etc.
Words and music: Philip Bliss (1838-1876)
E A E C#m B7 E
"Almost persuaded" now to believe;
A E B7 E
"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 lingering near
Prayers rise from hearts so dear;
O wanderer, come!
"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!
