1 Come, come today!
Do not delay,
Come to thy Father’s home!
Look to him now,
In meekness bow,
Leave all thy sins and come!

2 Come, come today!
Trust him alway,
Yield now to him thy soul!
Thou shalt find joy,
Without alloy;
Come, he will make thee whole!

3 Come, come today!
How canst thou stay
Far from thy Father’s side?
He’ll take thee in,
Cleanse every sin,
And let his peace abide.

4 Come, come today!
Turn not away,
If thou wouldst now be blest.
Hark to his voice!
Come and rejoice!
Come, he will give thee rest.

5 Come, come today!
Earth’s joys decay.
Heav’n’s glories thou may share
With all his own,
Close to the throne
And praise him ever there.
