Representative Text

1 Jesus bids you come,
Jesus bids you come,
Earnestly for you He’s calling,
Gently at thy heart He’s pleading,
“Come unto Me,
Come unto Me.”

2 Jesus bids you come,
Jesus bids you come,
Weary trav’ler, do not tarry,
Jesus will thy burdens carry;
Oh, will you come?
Oh, will you come?

3 Jesus bids you come,
Jesus bids you come,
Voices may not always call you,
“Late, too late,” may yet befall you;
“Why will ye die?”
“Why will ye die?”

4 Jesus bids you come,
Jesus bids you come,
Where ‘tis love and joy forever,
Where we’ll meet to part, no, never;
Sinner, come home,
Oh, come, come home.
