Representative Text

Come to Jesus, O my brothers,
Come in this accepted hour;
Jesus ready stands to save you,
Full of pity, love, and power;

Nor of fitness fondly dream;
All the fitness he requireth
Is to feel your need of him;
This he gives you,—

Come, ye weary, heavy laden;
Wait not,—’tis your Saviour’s call;
If you tarry till you’re better,
You will never come at all.
Not the righteous,
Sinners, Jesus came to call.
