Representative Text

1 That grand word “whosoever” is ringing thro’ my soul,
Whosoever will may come;
In rivers of salvation the living waters roll,
Whosoever will may come.

Refrain:
O that “whosoever”!
Whosoever will may come;
The Saviour’s invitation is freely sounding still,
Whosoever will may come.

2 Whenever this sweet message in God’s own word I see,
Whosoever will may come;
I know ’tis meant for sinners, I know ’tis meant for me,
Whosoever will may come. [Refrain]

3 I heard the loving message, and now to others say,
Whosoever will may come;
Seek now the precious Saviour, and he’ll be yours today,
Whosoever will may come. [Refrain]

4 To God be all the glory! his only Son he gave,
Whosoever will may come;
And those who come believing, he’ll to the utmost save,
Whosoever will may come. [Refrain]
