1 O come unto Jesus and trust in His name—
His promise forever is true;
Come lay down your burden of sorrow and shame,
For Jesus is calling for you.

Take Him at His word,
Take Him at His word;
All who believe
Christ will receive,
Take Him at His word.

2 A perfect salvation the Saviour will give
To all who His gospel obey;
And Jesus is waiting your sins to forgive:
O trust in His mercy today. [Refrain]

3 Full pardon is promised to all who receive
The message God’s mercy hath giv’n.
Delay then no longer on Christ to believe
And enter the kingdom of heav’n. [Refrain]
