1. “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 today!

Almost persuaded:” turn not away!

Jesus invites you here,

Angels are lingering near,

Prayers rise from heart so dear;

O wanderer, 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!

1. Admit that you are a sinner. "For all [humans] have sinned, and comes short of the glory of God....[and] the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord" (Romans 3:23)
2. Repent now. "Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out ...[for] if we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness " (Acts 3:19, 1 John 1:9)
3. Believe that God loves you and Jesus died for you. "God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet Sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8)
4. Invite Jesus into your life through prayer of faith. Jesus says, "Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me" (Revelation 3:20)
