424. Jesus Sinners Doth Receive

1. "Jesus sinners doth receive:"
Word of surest consolation;
Word all sorrow to relieve,
Word of pardon, peace, salvation!
Naught like this can comfort give:
"Jesus sinners doth receive."

2. On God's grace we have no claim,
Yet to us His pledge is given;
He hath swown by His own Name,
Open are the gates of heaven.
Take to heart this word and live:
"Jesus sinners doth receive."

3. When a helpless lamb doth stray,
After it, the Shepherd, pressing
Thro' each dark and dang'rous way,
Brings it back, His own possessing.
Jesus seeks thee, O believe:
"Jesus sinners doth receive."
