Representative Text

1. Come to Jesus! are you lonely?
Solace sweet He will afford;
Lean on Jesus, Jesus only!
Come and find a loving Lord.

2. He is waiting will you leave Him,
Pleading at your heart in vain?
He is willing oh, believe Him;
He may never call again.

3. Now it is the time to test Him,
Test Him by His written word;
Come, for He will ne'er deny it;
Come to Christ, the risen Lord.

4. By still waters He will lead you,
In green pastures you shall rest;
And the pierced hands that freed you,
Bear you near His tender breast.
