Representative Text

1 Come, oh, come with thy broken heart,
Weary and worn with care;
Come and kneel at the open door,
Jesus is waiting there:
Waiting to heal thy wounded soul,
Waiting to give thee rest;
Why wilt thou walk where shadows fall?
Come to his loving breast.

Refrain:
Come, oh, come with thy broken heart
Weary and worn with care;
Come and kneel at the open door,
Jesus is waiting there.

2 Firmly cling to the blessed cross,
There shall thy refuge be;
Wash thee now in the crimson fount,
Flowing so pure for thee:
List to the gentle warning voice,
List to the earnest call,
Leave at the cross thy burden now,
Jesus will bear it all. [Refrain]

3 Come and taste of the precious feast,
Feast of eternal love;
Think of joys that forever bloom,
Bright in the life above:
Come with a trusting heart to God,
Come and be saved by grace;
Come, for he loves to clasp thee now,
Close in his dear embrace. [Refrain]
