Abundantly pardon

Representative Text

1 O seek for the Savior, and find Him today;
He never yet turned a poor sinner away;
He’ll be your Redeemer, your strength and your stay,
For He will abundantly pardon.

Refrain:
O list to His sweet invitation;
Come, share in His mighty salvation;
O come to the Savior while He may be found,
For He will abundantly pardon.

2 Come, bow at His cross with a penitent prayer,
And hasten His blessed atonement to share;
Renouncing all evil, confide in His care,
For He will abundantly pardon. [Refrain]

3 Then go with rejoicing, receiving sweet peace;
From sin’s heavy fetters find happy release;
Go, singing the mercies that never shall cease,
For He will abundantly pardon. [Refrain]
