LXXXI. An Invitation

1 Come to Jesus, come away,
Heard I not the Spirit say?
Come, and all the Sweetness prove,
Of the Holy Ghost and Love:
Come, and dwell forevermore,
All in Raptures burn, adore.

2 Come to Jesus, come away,
Come to Jesus, do not stay;
Jesus sed his precious Blood
That you might swim in pleasure's Flood
Jesus div'd into a Sea
Of the deepest Wrath for thee.

3 Come to Jesus, come away;
virgin Spirit, shun delay:
Jesus laid aside his Robes,
That you may lay aside your sobs.
Jesus colath'd himself with shame
That you may cloath you with his Name.

4 Come to Jesus, come away,
This is thy espousal Day;
Come away, come to thy Home,
Come away to thy Bridegroom:
To the world bid adieu,
Heav'n see within thy View.

5 Come to Jesus, come away,
Welcome with thy Lord to stay;
Welcome to thy Heav'n at last,
Now the Indignation's past.
Roll, ye Billows, roll and roar,
Now thy Treasure's safe above.
