Dear wayward soul

Ingrid Bekkevold

Ingrid Bekkevold wrote this Christian song as a call to those who are unconverted or struggling. She understood that Jesus was the new, living Way to peace, joy, and freedom from sin. It is sung here by Buddy Coblentz.

Dear wayward soul, into sin led astray,
From peace and happiness, so far away,
Pause now and listen, I call you today;
Hearken, for I am the new, living Way.

Sinner, come back, I am waiting today;
Hearken to Me, to the new, living Way.
Strength for each day, it sufficient shall be.
While I am nigh, give your heart unto Me.

Count all as dung that this world has to give
If as My own blessed child you would live.
All things I claim, but I fill every need.
From sin and Satan I’ll free you indeed.

Sinner, come back, I am waiting today;
Hearken to Me, to the new, living Way.
Strength for each day, it sufficient shall be.
While I am nigh, give your heart unto Me.

See, in My hands I have graven you here,
And in My sight you are precious and dear.
Suffering, My portion, your debt thus to pay;
Come unto Me; I’m the new, living Way.

Sinner, come back, I am waiting today;
Hearken to Me, to the new, living Way.
Strength for each day, it sufficient shall be.
While I am nigh, give your heart unto Me.
