1 Jesus is the friend of sinners,
Jesus died our souls to save;
On the cruel cross He suffered,
There His precious life He gave.

Sinner, come to Christ today;
Come, accept Him while you may;
Now His precious blood will cleanse you,
Will you come to Him today?

2 f in sin you choose to wander,
Still reject His love so true,
You must part from friends and loved ones,
Who are praying now for you. [Refrain]

3 Will you not in faith accept Him,
Trust the Christ who died for you,
That when life on earth is over,
You His loving face may view? [Refrain]

4 When our journey here is ended,
When life’s race is fully run,
If we’ve followed Christ, our Savior,
We shall hear His sweet "Well done!" [Refrain]
