Representative Text

1 Lost one, the Saviour calls,
“Come unto me;”
Come, ere life’s twilight falls,
Jesus entreateth thee.
See, at the throne of God
Waiteth the King.
Pleading His precious blood,
Priceless offering!

Lost one, hasten now!
To Jesus go!
“Tho’ thy sins be scarlet,
They shall be white as snow.”

2 No other offering
Thy need can meet;
To Christ thy soul must cling,
He is God’s “Mercy Seat.”
Bought by His precious blood,
Thou mayst be free;
Cleansed in that crimson flood,
Saved eternally. [Refrain]

3 Paid is thy ransom price,
O captive, see!
Not gold, but blood of Christ
Hath fully purchased thee.
Step into freedom now,
Cast off thy chains,
Till of thy bondage dark
Not a spot remains. [Refrain]
