Representative Text

1. Come to Jesus! come away!
Forsake thy sins oh, why delay?
His arms are open night and day;
He waits to welcome thee!

2. Come to Jesus! all is free;
Hark! how he calls, "Come unto me!"
I cast out none, I'll pardon thee,"
Oh, thou shalt welcome be!

3. Come to Jesus! cling to him;
He'll keep thee far from paths of sin:
Thou shalt at last the vict'ry win,
And he will welcome thee.

4. Come to Jesus! Lord, I come!
Weary of sin, no more I'd roam,
But with my Saviour be at home;
I know he'll welcome me!

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >
