1 Come, sinners, to the Living One,
He's just the same Jesus
As when He raised the widow's son,
The very same Jesus.

The very same Jesus,
The wonder working Jesus:
O praise His name!
He's just the same,
The very same Jesus.

2 Come, feast upon the "living bread,"
He's just the same Jesus
As when the multitudes He fed,
The very same Jesus. [Chorus]

3 Come, tell Him all your griefs and fears,
He's just the same Jesus
As when He shed those loving tears,
The very same Jesus. [Chorus]

4 Come unto Him for clearer light,
He's just the same Jesus
As when He gave the blind their sight,
The very same Jesus. [Chorus]

5 Calm 'midst the waves of trouble be,
He's just the same Jesus
As when He hush'd the raging sea,
The very same Jesus. [Chorus]

6 Some day our raptured eyes shall see
He's just the same Jesus;
O blessed day for you and me!
The very same Jesus. [Chorus]
