O wonderful message they bring,
Proclaiming a blessèd redemption
Thro’ Jesus, our Savior and king.
Believe, oh, believe, in His mercy
That flows like a fountain so free;
Believe, and receive the redemption
He offers to you and to me.
2 He came from the throne of His glory,
And left the bright mansions above,
The world to redeem from its bondage;
So great His compassion and love. [Refrain]
3 O come to this wonderful Savior,
Come, weary and sorrow oppressed;
Behold on the cross how He suffered,
That you in His kingdom might rest. [Refrain]
4 There’s no other refuge but Jesus,
No shelter where lost ones may fly;
And now, while He’s tenderly calling:
O turn ye, for why will ye die? [Refrain] Used With Tune: GÜTERSLOH Text Sources: Gospel Hymns No. 5, by Ira D. Sankey et al. (New York: The John Church Company/Biglow & Main, 1887)
