So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

818. Come, Poor Sinner

1 O poor sinner, come to Jesus,
Lay on Him your weary soul;
He will give you peace and pardon,
Purify and make you whole.

Refrain:
Gently now the Spirit’s whisp’ring,
Wooing, calling you today;
Don’t you hear Him softly saying,
Urging, pleading, “Don’t delay”?

2 O poor sinner, come to Jesus,
Now He speaks so tenderly,
“Come to Me, for you I’ve suffered,
Bled and died on Calvary.” [Refrain]

3 O poor sinner, come to Jesus,
Lay your heart at His dear feet;
He will fold you in His bosom,
And will make your rest complete. [Refrain]

4 O poor sinner, come to Jesus,
Time is fleeting swiftly by;
Still the loving Savior’s calling,
Come, oh, come, why will you die? [Refrain]

5 O poor sinner, come to Jesus,
Hasten, come, before too late;
Lest the Spirit cease His wooing;
Sad, then, sad will be your fate. [Refrain]
