Almost persuaded, was I to believe
In a God who died for me
Almost I was willing to receive
His gift of love so free
Almost I believed in Him……
A King who left His throne
To become the Perfect Lamb
Our sin-stains to atone
Almost, almost I believed
In the One who died for me
But almost now will never be
Enough in death to set me free
Almost, I bowed my head to weep
Repentant of my sin
Almost, almost this straying sheep
Joined the ninety-nine
But it seems that life distracted me
From that One perfect love
In anguish now I sadly see
Almost is not enough
Almost, almost, I said ‘yes
Yes Lord, I believe
But almost is vain foolishness
No mercy can it give
Whoever believes on Him shall have
Hope beyond the cold, dark grave
And in this fleeting strife
Whosoever will come to Him
He will not cast away
Almost is a hopeless gleam
If we never say……..
“Yes, oh Lord, yes I believe
Accept my humble plea”
Almost persuaded cannot be enough
Now to deliver me……….
God commends His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us [ROM 5:8].
For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world: but that the world through Him might be saved [JOH 3:16, 17].
He is the lover of our souls.
The Son of God, Who loved me, and gave Himself for me [GAL 2:20].
Come unto Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest [MAT 11:28].
This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptation that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners [1TI 1:15].
He is the Savior of all who believe in Him.
Christ also once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God [1PE 3:18].
The wages of sin is death: but the GIFT of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord [ROM 6:23].
Be it known to you therefore ... that through this Man is preached unto you the forgiveness of sins and by Him all who believe are justified from all things [ACT 13:38, 39].
He is the risen, living Savior Who is able to save ALL who come to Him.
Wherefore He is able also to save them to the uttermost who come unto God by Him seeing He ever lives to make intercession for them [HEB 7:25].
Jesus said I am the resurrection and the life: he who believes on Me, though he were dead, yet shall he live [JOH 11:25].
I am the door: by Me if any man enter in, he shall be saved ... And I give to them eternal life and they shall never perish [JOH 10:9, 28].
He is the One who now invites you to receive Him as your Savior.
If you will confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and will believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved [ROM 10:9].
He who comes to Me I will in no wise cast out ... Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes on Me has everlasting life [JOH 6:37, 47].
He is the One Who will judge in righteousness all those who refuse His salvation.
He who believes on the Son has everlasting life: and he who believes not the Son shall not see life: but the wrath of God abides on him [JOH 3:36].
God ... now commands all men everywhere to repent: because He has appointed a day, in which He will judge the world in righteousness by that Man Whom He has ordained [ACT 17:20, 31].
