473. 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 sworn 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."

4 Oh, how blest it is to know:
were as scarlet my transgression,
it shall be as white as snow
by thy blood and bitter passion;
for these words I now believe:
"Jesus sinners doth receive."

5 Now my conscience is at peace,
from the Law I stand acquitted;
Christ hath purchased my release
and my every sin remitted.
Naught remains my soul to grieve -
"Jesus sinners doth receive."
