Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

But, before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going.

You are one of more than half a million people who come here every month: worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and many more. Here at Hymnary.org, you have free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue.

Come, lost one, your Savior is calling

Full Text

1 Come, lost one, your Saviour is calling,
He's pleading with tenderest voice;
Come out from you ways of transgression,
And hasten to make Him your choice.

Refrain:
Oh, why should you wander in darkness?
Oh, why should you longer delay,
When Jesus is ready to save you,
And keep you from sin ev'ry day?

2 Come with all thy guilt and pollution,
And call on the name of the Lord;
He's ready to cleanse and to bless you,
And save by His life-giving Word. [Refrain]

3 Thy sins tho' they be red like crimson,
Yea, tho' they be many and great,
Shall be blotted out by your Saviour,
If you come to Him ere too late. [Refrain]

4 The Lord has provided abundance,
Yea, all that ye need is in store;
Then come and partake of His bounty,
And trust Him for grace evermore. [Refrain]
