Representative Text

1 Come, none on earth can comfort thee
Or bid thy burdened heart be free;
Come, there is peace at Calvary;
Come,hear the word—forgiv'n!

No one but Christ thy debt can pay,
he is to life the only way.
None but His loving voice can say—
"Thy sins are all forgv'n!"

2 Tho' years in sin thou hast misspent
Fear not, but come, believe, repent,
this is the message God hath sent—
"All, all shall be forgv'n." [Refrain]

3 No wonder that with joy e weep;
God doth no more the record keep
Of pardoned sins; they're buried deep,
As in the sea—forgiv'n! [Refrain]
