1 Oh, why should I be lost,
So careless meet my doom?
I hear a loving voice
Inviting me to come.

Refrain:
Yes, whosoever will
May freely come to God;
’Tis mercy calling still,

2 The Spirit and the bride,
And angels ’round the throne,
Assure me Jesus died
That I may freely come. [Refrain]

3 I know that God is love,
He freely gave His Son,
Who intercedes above,
That I may truly come. [Refrain]

4 I hear the strong appeal

And in my heart I feel
That even I may come. [Refrain]

5 Yes, whosoever will,
Thy word, O Lord, I own;
Though near the brink of hell,
All heaven bids me come. [Refrain]
