Come Unto Me Saith Jesus

Representative Text

1. "Come unto me," saith the crucified One,
My blood I shed, My life I give."
Hark! He is risen from death and the grave,
"Come unto me and live."

"Come unto me, oh come unto me,
'Tis life everlasting I give,"
Then come, weary one, while yet he calls,
Forever with Him to live.

2 All who are sad and forsaken, give heed,
The sick the poor, the lost and blind,
Comfort and pardon and healing you need,
Oh! come and you shall find. [Chorus]

3 All who are walking in sunshine today,
The glad and free, untouched by care,
Jesus is calling to come while you may,
His greater joy to share. [Chorus]

4 Jesus, Redeemer, we come unto Thee,
We hear Thy voice, Thy loving voice,
Keep and defend us and teach us thy way,
And make us to rejoice. [Chorus]
