Almost Persuaded
Words and Music by Phillip P. Bliss

Acts 26:28
"Then Agrippa said unto Paul, Almost thou persuadest me to be a Christian."

          "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!

          "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!
