1 How gentle and sweet, is the Saviour’s voice!
It bids every trembling heart rejoice;
O come to Him now, make Him your choice,
He patiently waits for thee.

Refrain:
Come to Him now, yes, com to Him now;
Rest in His love, at His feet lowly bow.
Come to Him now, yes, com to Him now;
O wand’rer come home to Him now.

2 Your sins may be heavy, your faith be weak,
But Jesus has come your soul to seek;
O come to Him now, and He will speak
The sins of your life forgiven. [Refrain]

3 The night may be dark, and the way be drear,
But Jesus is waiting your heart to cheer;
then come to Him now, while He is near;
And trust in His mighty power. [Refrain]
