Is whispering, Sinner, come:
The Bride, the Church of Christ, proclaims
To all His children, Come.

2 Let him that heareth say
To all about him, Come;
Let him that thirsts for righteousness
To Christ the fountain come.

3 Yes, whosoever will,

And freely drink the stream of life;
'Tis Jesus bids him come.

4 Lo, Jesus, Who invites,
Declares, I quickly come.
Lord! even so; I wait Thy hour:
Jesus, my Saviour, come.
