1 Come away to Jesus; he is willing to forgive,
His love will shine around you ev’ry moment that you live;
You’ll find him good and true,
The pilgrim journey thro’,
He’ll do better for you than this world can do.

Refrain:
He’ll do better for you than this world can do,
He’s a mighty Saviour, he is good and true;
He’ll save you by his grace,
Until you see his face,
He’ll do better for you than this world can do.

2 Come away to Jesus; let illusive trifles go,
For everlasting blessing he is able to bestow;
He’ll answer when you pray,
He’ll take you sins away,
Lead you up and onward to his perfect day. [Refrain]

3 Come away to Jesus; from your earthly idols part,
And take his great salvation, for it satisfies the heart;
He’ll open to your view His treasure, ever new,
He’ll do better for you than this world can do. [Refrain]
