1 Jesus is passing, Jesus is passing,
Come, all ye blind, and receive now your sight;
He will bend o’er you,
He will restore you,
He will exchange all your darkness for light;
Come, and the Saviour will give you your sight.

2 Jesus is passing, Jesus is passing,

His life He gave you,
One look will save you,
He will attend to the poor cripple’s call;
Now He is passing, is passing for all.

3 Jesus is passing, Jesus is passing,
Come, all ye poor, to the plenteous store;
Now He will lead you,
Ever will feed you;
Jesus invites you to hunger no more;
Come to the bountiful heavenly store.

4 Jesus is passing, Jesus is passing,
Come, ye afflicted by sin and by shame;
O we implore you,
Let Him restore you;
Come while He lingers and calls you by name;
Come, all ye laden with sin and with shame.
