29a. Fairfield

1. Come, humble sinner, in whose breast
A thousand thoughts revolve,
Come, with your guilt and fear oppressed,
And make this last resolve.

2. I’ll go to Jesus, though my sin
Hath like a mountain rose;
I know His courts, I’ll enter in,
Whatever may oppose.

3. I can but perish if I go,
I am resolved to try,
For if I stay away I know
I must forever die.
