Hymnal: A Pocket Hymn Book #II (1791) Topics: Awakening and Inviting Lyrics: 1 Come, ye sinners, poor and needy
Weak and wounded, sick and sore,
Jesus ready stands to save you,
Full of pity, love, and pow'r;
He is able,
He is willing, doubt no more.
2 Now, ye needy, come and welcome,
God's free bounty glorify;
True belief, and true repentance,
Every grace that brings you nigh;
Come to Jesus Christ and buy.
3 Let not conscience make you linger,
Nor of fitness fondly dream,
All the fitness he requires,
Is to feel you need of him;
This he gives you,
'Tis the Spirit's glimm'ring beam.
4 Come, ye weary, heavy laden'd,
Bruis'd and mangled by the fall,
If you tarry till you're better,
You will never come at all,
Not the righteous,
Sinners Jesus came to call.
5 Agonizing in the garden,
Lo! your Maker prostrate lies!
On the bloody tree behold him!
Hear him cry before he dies,
"It is finish'd!"
Sinners, will not this suffice?
6 Lo! th' incarnate God ascending,
Pleads the merit of his blood;
Venture on him, venture freely,
Let no other trust intrude;
None but Jesus
Can do helpless sinners good.
7 Saints and angels join'd in concert,
Sing the praises of the Lamb,
While the blissful seats of heaven,
Sweetly echo with his name;
Sinners here may do the same. Languages: English
