Representative Text

1 Jesus with you is pleading,
Come, sinner, come;
Tenderly interceding,
Come, sinner, come;
O, do not turn away,
His loving call obey,
Still, still, with you He's pleading,
Come, sinner, come.

2 Is sin your soul oppressing,
Come, sinner, come;
Come, all your guilt confessing,
Come, sinner, come;
He will your sins forgive,
He'll bid you "Look and live,"
Come and receive a blessing,
Come, sinner, come.

3 Say, is your burden heavy?
Come, sinner, come;
Are you of striving weary?
Come, sinner, come;
He will your burden bear,
And all your sorrows share,
Now, while for you we're praying,
Come, sinner, come.

4 Let not the world enslave you,
Come, sinner, come;
Christ died that He might save you,
Come, sinner, come,
Come, lean upon His breast,
Here find sweet peace and rest,
Now, while for you we're praying,
Come, sinner, come.
