Full Text

1 God so loved a world of sinners wretched and undone,
That He freely gave for them His well-beloved Son,
Whosoever looketh unto Christ on Calvary,
Shall be ransomed; “Whosoever” that means me.

Refrain:
“Whosoever,” Hallelujah!
Jesus saves and sets me free,
I will love Him, ever love Him,
“Whosoever” that means me.

2 “Whosoever” oh how broad the invitation sounds,
“Whosoever” reaches to the earth’s remotest bounds,
Jesus by His precious blood makes altogether free
And His “Whosoever cometh,” that means me. [Refrain]

3 There is none so righteous but he needs the blessed Lord,
There is none so vile but Christ invites him in His word,
There is none who may not come to Jesus with the plea:
Thou hast said it—“Whosoever” that means me. [Refrain]
