Come, lost one, your Savior is calling

Representative 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]
