1 Are you tired of sinning,
Loathing it today?
Do you want your heart made clean?
Jesus is the Way.

Chorus:
Come to Jesus, lost one;
O, no longer roam;
He in pity waits to bless,
Calling you, come home.

2 Are the chains drawn closer,
Would you be made free?
Come to Jesus, ling'ring one,
He will save e'en thee. [Chorus]

3 Do you doubt his promise?
Put it to the test:
He has said, "Come unto me,
I will give you rest." [Chorus]

4 Yes, his blood can cleanse you,
Wash you from each sin:
From your heart no longer keep,
Bid him enter in. [Chorus]

5 Why not answer quickly,
"Saviour dear, I hear;
I receive thy wondrous love,
I will trust, not fear." [Chorus]

Stanton, Frederick S. (New Bedford, Massachusetts, December 20, 1857--October 1, 1915, New Bedford). Held a Bachelor of Music degree and was ordained to the Advent Christian ministry. He held pastorates at Hudson Falls, New York and Lawrence, Mass. Ill health and a final paralysis limited activity in his later years, although he supplied in various churches around New Bedford. He wrote words and music to a number of hymns, and composed the music for other Advent Christian hymn-writers. He was secretary of the Southern Massachusetts District Conference of his denomination. He contributed to the preparation of several of its hymnals, and was co-editor of The Golden Sheaf (1898), Carols of Hope (1906) and The Advent Christian Hymnal (1913).… Go to person page >
