Come, ye wanderers, now forsaken

Representative Text

1 Come, ye wand'rers, all forsaken,
Come to Christ for sweetest rest;
Come and join the heav'nly chorus;
Come, and be supremely blessed.

Refrain:
Come, ye weary, heavy laden,
Long by sin and care oppressed;
Hear the precious invitation;
"Come, and I will give you rest."

2 Saints are waiting, angels longing,
God's inviting, sinner, come;
Why still linger? Why refuse him?
And in sinful paths still roam? [Refrain]

3 Christ is waiting to forgive you,
Seek, and his forgiveness find;
One and all can have sweet pardon;
He has died for all mankind. [Refrain]

4 Come, ye weary, heavy laden,
Lay your burdens all aside;
Come and claim the blessed Jesus;
'Twas for you the dear Lord died. [Refrain]
