Representative Text

1 Come, ye sinners, come to Jesus,
Think upon your glorious Lord,

2 Dearest Saviour, help thy servant
To proclaim thy wodn'rous love;
Pour thy grace upon this people,
That thy truth they may approve;
Bless O bless them
From thy shining courts above.

3 Now thy gracious word invites them
To partake the gospel-feast:
Let thy Spirit sweetly draw them,
Ev'ry soul be Jesus' guest.
O receive us
Let us find thy promis'd rest.
