1 Christ is ready to welcome every needy heart,
Every sinner forgiven may be;
Peace and comfort and gladness He will now impart
Unto all who will answer His plea.

When He said "Whosoever,"
He included you and me,
And I am glad, I am glad;
When He said "Whosoever,"
He meant all who would be free,
And I am glad, I am glad.

2 Not alone to the wealthy did the Master speak,
Not alone to the poor who were nigh;
But to all who had wandered and were lost and weak,
Did His sweet "whosoever" apply. [Refrain]

3 Come today with your troubles, come with all your sin,
On His love cast your grief and your care;
He is waiting to make you white as snow within,
Waiting now all your burdens to bear. [Refrain]
