1. There’s a line that is drawn by rejecting our Lord,

Where the call of His Spirit is lost,..

And you hurry along with the pleasure-mad throng-

Have you counted, have you counted the cost?


Have you counted the cost, if your soul should be lost,

Tho’ you gain the whole world for your own?…

Even now it may be that the line you have crossed,

Have you counted, have you counted the cost?

2. You may barter your hope of eternity’s morn,

For a moment of joy at the most,…

For the glitter of sin and the things it will win-

Have you counted, have you counted the cost?

3. While the door of His mercy is open to you,

Ere the depth of His love you exhaust,..

Won’t you come and be healed, won’t you whisper, I yield-

I have counted, I have counted, the cost.

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)
