Representative Text

1 Jesus, gracious one, calleth now to thee,
"Come, O sinner, come!"
Calls so tenderly, calls so lovingly,
"Now, O sinner, come?"
Words of peace and blessing,
Christ's own love confessing;

Hear the sweet voice of Jesus,
Full, full of love;
Calling tenderly, calling lovingly,
"Come, O sinner, come!"

2 Still he waits for thee, pleading patiently,
"Come, O come to me!
Heavy-laden one, I thy grief have borne,
Come and rest in me."
Words of love o'erflowing,
Life and bliss bestowing; [Refrain]

3 Weary, sin-sick soul, called so graciously,
Canst thou dare refuse?
Mercy offered thee, freely, tenderly,
Wilt thou still abuse?
Come, for time is flying,
Haste, thy lamp is dying; [Refrain]
