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

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]
