Representative Text

1 Come, come to the Savior, poor, sin-burdened soul,
Come bring Him thy sorrow, He will make thee whole;
He’s full of compassion, boundless is His love,
To seek and to save you, He came from above.

Refrain:
Come, come to the Savior, angels sweetly sing;
Come, come to the Savior, bell of heaven ring;
While Jesus is pleading, while thy loved ones pray,
Come, come to the Savior, no longer delay.

2 Come, come to the Savior, Oh, hear His sweet voice,
Come ye that are weary, make Him now your choice;
He waits to be gracious, longs to pardon thee,
Thy chains He will sever, come now and be free. [Refrain]

3 Come, come to the Savior, He’ll give thee sweet rest,
Come lay down thy burden, lean upon His breast;
So long thou hast wandered, weary, sad and lone,
Thy Saviour is calling, “poor wand’rer come home.” [Refrain]

4 Come, come to the Savior, the night cometh on,
Come, come to the Savior, day will soon be gone;
His Spirit so tender will not strive alway,
The harvest is passing, come, while it is day. [Refrain]
