Representative Text

1 Come, come, come to the Savior,
Rich, rich mercy receive;
Here, here you will find pardon,
Jesus from sin will relieve:
Come, come, come, come,
Come to the Savior and live.

2 Come, come, laden and weary,
Christ, Christ calls thee to come;
Leave, leave paths dark and dreary,
Cease from the Savior to roam:
Come, come, come, come,
Jesus will guide thee safe home.

3 Come, come, seek his salvation,
Now, now, hear and obey;
Hark, hark, th' sweet invitation,
Angels invite you away:
Come, come, come, come,
Sinner, believe and obey.

4 Hark, hark, angels are singing,
Love, love, love is their theme;
Peace, peace, joyfully bringing,
Mercy from God the Supreme:
Come, come, come, come,
Jesus is rich to redeem.
