1 Come to the cross today!
Jesus awaits you there;
Come for his pardon pray,
Come and his mercy share.

Chorus:
Come, come to the cross today!
Come! come! come!
Lay your burdens at Jesus’s feet,
He will give you forgiveness sweet;
Come! come! come! come!
Come to the cross today.

2 Come to the cross today!
Blessing awaits you there;
Why should you long delay?
He will your burdens bear. [Chorus]

3 Come to the cross today!
Jesus will freely bless,
Light with his love your way,
Crown you with righteousness. [Chorus]

4 Come to the cross today!
While he awaits you there;
Come for his favor pray,
Freely his love you’ll share. [Chorus]
