89. Come, needy sinners

1 Come, needy sinners,
Jesus is waiting,
Waiting to give you peace within;
Haste to the Savior,
Trust in his mercy,
Taste all the joys of pardoned sin.

Linger no longer,
Come now to Jesus,
Low at his foot-stool humbly bow
Oh Linger no longer,
Come now to Jesus,
Jesus will save you save just now.

2 Come, come to Jesus,
Angels are waiting,
Waiting to bear the news above;
Sinners are coming,
Wand'rers returning,
Seeking again a Father's love. [Chorus]

3 Come, come to Jesus,
Dear friends are waiting,
Waiting to greet you in their throng;
Happy in Jesus,
Sharing their rapture,
Singing with them the new, new song. [Chorus]

4 Come, come to Jesus,
All things are ready,
Ready for your return today;
Time fast is fleeting,
Judgment is hast'ning,
Come, find salvation while you may. [Chorus]
