Representative Text

1 Jesus, poor sinners will receive,
And make them welcome too;
He calls on them to come and live!
I am a friend to you.

2 He eats and drinks, and treats with them,
On gracious terms of peace;
And they who firmly b'lieve on him,
Shall know his pard'ning grace.

3 He seeks them as poor wand'ring sheep,
Who e'er and go astray;
And by his providence will keep,
Them in the righteous way.

4 He calls them with a loving voice,
And wishes them to come;
And angels too with him rejoice!
To see them turning home.

5 He seeks the lost till they are found,
He saves and sets them free;
His heart with pure desires abound,
Their happiness to see.

6 O why should sinners dread or fear?
On Jesus to attend--
Who calls on them to bring them near,
To him, their Lord and friend.
