Representative Text

1 Listen to the Saviour’s voice,
Come away!
Sinner, now make Him your choice,
Come to Him today.

Jesus saves, He saves today;
Why not come without delay?
Mercy’s door is open wide,
O come, come away.

2 Burdened with your load of sin,
Come away!
To your heart let Him come in,
Come to Him today. [Refrain]

3 Bring your doubts and fears along,
Come away!
Christ the weakest can make strong,
Come to Him today. [Refrain]

4 All you may not understand,
Come away!
Grasp by faith the outstretch’d hand,
Come to Him today. [Refrain]

After attending a revival meeting by Reuben Torrey and Charles M. Alexander, Harkness became Alexander’s pianist. He came to Christ shortly thereafter (on a bicycle, he said), and made several round the world tours with Torrey and Alexander. Harkness was especially well known for his program The Music of the Cross, and as the author of correspondence courses in hymn playing. He wrote over 2,000 hymns and Gospel songs in his lifetime.
