Representative Text

1 Come now to Jesus, he calleth thee;
He died to save thee on Calvary.
Come to his bleeding side,
Plunge 'neath the crimson tide,
His arms are open wide,
Come now to Him!

2 Come now to Jesus, bow at his cross,
And for the Master count all else dross
He is a faithful friend,
On him you can depend,
He'll keep you to the end,
Come now to Him!

3 Come now to Jesus, no longer wait,
Come now to Jesus, ere it's too late.
"Spirit and bride say come,"
Soon life's short race is run;
If you would hear, "Well done!"
Come now to Him!
