Representative Text

1 The glorious gospel of the Son of God
Is free to all who hear;
To all who wish His righteousness to claim,
This word of faith is near.

If thou shalt confess Him as your Lord,
And believe that God hath raised Him from the dead,
Thou shalt be saved,
Thou shalt be saved.

2 His word is sure, His promise cannot fail,
His love extends to all;
His grace, whose depths are deeper than the sea,
Is free for ev’ry call. [Refrain]

3 ‘Twas not the righteous Jesus came to call,
but sinners dead in sin;
And all who come confessing Him as Lord,
May now new life begin. [Refrain]

4 That great word, “whosoever will may come,”
Includes the whole of man;
Redemptions work, thro’ death, has been decreed,
E’er since the world began. [Refrain]
