Representative Text

1 Come, oh, come to the ark of rest,—
Jesus will save you now;
Come, with the weight of your guilt oppressed,
Jesus will save you now.

Refrain:
Come while your cheeks with tears are wet,
Come ere the star of life shall set,
Come, and the step you will ne’er regret,
Jesus will save you now.

2 Come, oh, come to the ark of grace,—
Jesus will save you now;
Haste to his arms and his dear embrace,
Jesus will save you now. [Refrain]

3 Come, oh, come to the ark of love,—
Jesus will save you now;
Come like the worn and weary dove,
Jesus will save you now. [Refrain]

4 Who’ll be first to arise for prayer?
Jesus will save you now;
Who’ll be the first the cross to bear?
Jesus will save you now. [Refrain]
