1 Come, souls that are longing for pleasure,
Our Savior has pleasures to give;
Come find in His love the rare treasure
That makes every true pleasure live.

Come now, saith the Lord, let us reason,
Come now and your purpose declare;
Is it pleasures of sin for a season,
Or pleasures the glorified share?

2 The pleasures of sin are deceiving,
They’ve nothing for yesterday’s pain,
But hope of tomorrow receiving,
And then, it’s tomorrow again. [Refrain]

3 The pleasures of sin are all fleeting,
They vanish with life’s passing morn;
Like dewdrops the morning sun greeting,
They glisten, and then they are gone. [Refrain]

4 Then all who are longing for pleasure,
Ye weary, and all who are worn;
Come find in the Lord a sure treasure,
That from you shall never be torn. [Refrain]

5 Of Jesus, thy choice now be making,
Redeemer, and Savior, and Lord;
And soon in the glory awaking,
You’ll share in the saint’s blest reward. [Refrain]
