Representative Text

1 “Come whosoever will!” our Lord once said in Galilee,
And in that invitation He included even me.

Refrain:
He surely means me,
He surely means me;
Altho’ He means many millions more,
He surely means me.

2 Tho’ sins may be as scarlet they shall be as white as snow;
My soul is cleansed and purified in Jesus’ blood, I know. [Refrain]

3 For all He has prepared a place, where many mansions be;
I claim His promise, for I know there’s one in heav’n for me. [Refrain]

4 Then thro’ the ages I shall sing of His redeeming grace,
And praise Him that for such as I He could prepare a place. [Refrain]
