O come to the blessed Savior

Representative Text

1. O come to the blessed Saviour,
Come, weary and sin sick soul;
He graciously waits to bless you,
He only can make you whole.

Chorus:
Come to Him now, Come to Him now,
Come to Him now, I pray;
He graciously waits to save you,
O, wanderer, come today.

2. O come to the blessed Saviour,
For you He has waited long,
Yet waits, a clean heart to give you,
And teach you a glad, new song. [Chorus]

3. O come to the blessed Saviour,
O come ere it be too late;
If he should for you cease calling,
How sad would then be your fate. [Chorus]
