1 Come to the house of God, His people gather there;
Come join with them in song, come kneel with them in prayer.
Come, for the Spirit calls, O sinner, calls thee now;
Come while the Savior waits, before Him humbly bow.
2 Come, heavy ladened one, there’s promise sweet for thee;
Hear now thy Savior say— come, weary one, to Me.
Come, all who needy are, the tempted and the tried;
From self now look away, to Christ, the crucified.
3 Come, Jew and Gentile both, come all, with one accord;
Come to His courts today, and gladly praise the Lord.
Come all who love our God, and bless His name today;
Come worship at His feet, and to Him humbly pray.
