Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Come sinners come to Jesus now

Representative Text

1 Come, sinners, come to Jesus now,
While mercy stands entreating;
The Spirit and the Bride say come,
The Savior's voice is pleading.

Come, sinners, come, before Him bow,
And find in Him salvation;
The rich, the poor, the lost, the blind,
Come, ev'ry tribe and nation.

2 Come, weary one, distress'd with sin,
His blood still is the token;
A full atonement He hath made,
The way to life is open. [Chorus]

3 Come, burden'd heart, and all oppress'd,
Come, Jesus has forgiven;
He is the life, the truth, the rest,
The only way to heaven. [Chorus]

4 I come, O Lord, I come to-day,
Forsaking sinful pleasure;
O do not turn from me away,
But be my only treasure. [Chorus]
