1 Hear the gentle voice that calls thee,
Come and see, come and see;
Jesus at the door of mercy
Waits for thee, waits for thee.
To a kindly shelter nigh,
Hate, O, haste thee, quickly fly.

Oh! the Saviour is standing at the door,
Oh! the Saviour is standing at the door—
Wilt thou enter in, he will cleanse thy sin,
Oh! the Saviour is standing at the door.

2 Art thou hungry? he will give thee
Living bread, living bread;
Lo! a table now before thee,
Richly spread, richly spread;
When such heavenly food is thine,
Wilt thou in a desert pine? [Refrain]

3 Art thou thirsty? cooling water,
Pure and free, pure and free,
From the spring of life eternal,
Flows for thee, flows for thee,
Trav’ler, drink, O, drink again,
Healing balm for ev’ry pain. [Refrain]

4 Art thou weary? lay thy burden
At the cross, at the cross;
Count the world and all its pleasures
Only dross, only dross;
Come to Jesus, wounded soul,
He alone can make thee whole. [Refrain]
