Representative Text

1 Now the Saviour invites you to come,
And fly to the arms of His love;
In His kingdom of grace there is room,
And a mansion of glory above.

Over Jordan a home bright and fair,
Our Saviour has gone to prepare;
We shall rest by and by from our care,
In that home bright and fair, bright and fair.

2 Are you thirsty? remember the call:
O come, and salvation receive;
For the fountain is open to all
Who will truly repent and believe. [Refrain]

3 Are you weary, and sighing for rest?
To Jesus your refuge repair;
He will pillow your head on His breast,
If you seek him by watching and prayer. [Refrain]

4 To the faithful a promise is given,
Who meekly His counsel obey,
Of a crown of rejoicing in heav’n,
And a treasure that fades not away. [Refrain]
