Words and music: Philip Bliss (1838-1876)
From: Guitar Picker -
Almost Persuaded

E  A        E      C#m B7   E
"Almost persuaded" now to believe;
   A       E       B7          E
"Almost persuaded" Christ to receive;
A              E
Seems now some soul to say,
 B7          E
"Go, Spirit, go Thy way,
     A               E
Some more convenient day
B7           E
On Thee I’ll call."

"Almost persuaded," come, come today;
"Almost persuaded," turn not away;
Jesus invites you here,
Angels are lingering near
Prayers rise from hearts so dear;
O wanderer, 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!
