Representative Text

1 The Saviour is waiting and calling,
He bids us come in to the feast;
O come, all ye hungry and sad ones,
There’s room for the worst and the least.

Once they all made light of the story,
And turned to their pleasure and sin;
The proud and the careless despised Him,
But the humble and poor entered in.

2 He spread all His bounties before them,
He sought them where’er they might roam;
With love trembling sweet in His message,
He tenderly bade them come home. [Refrain]

3 Have you ever thought of His mercy?
He graciously calls you today;
The feast of His love still is waiting;
O turn not, O turn not away. [Refrain]
