90. Turn to the Lord

1 Come, ye sinners, poor and needy,
Weak and wounded, sick and sore;
Jesus ready stands to save you,
Full of pity, love, and power.

Turn to the Lord and seek salvation,
Sound the praise of his dear name;
Glory, honor, and salvation,
Christ the Lord has come to reign.

2 Now, ye needy, come and welcome;
God's free bounty glorify;
True belief and true repentance--
Every grace that brings you nigh.

3 Let not conscience make you linger,
Nor of fitness fondly dream;
All the fitness he requireth
Is to feel your need of him.

4 Come, ye weary, heaven-laden,
Bruised and mangled by the fall
If you tarry till you're better,
You will never come at all.

I will sprinkle you with water,
I will cleanse you from all sin,
Sanctify and make you holy,
I will come and dwell within.
