1 There’s a blessed invitation
Ringing out so full and free,
There’s a loving Savior calling—
“Sinners will you come to me?”

Refrain:
Will you come, will you come?
He is waiting for you,
See Him holding out His wounded hands,
Do not slight His love so true,
Will you come, will you come?
He is waiting for you,
Come today with this your only plea,
Jesus died, He died for me.

2 If you seek you’ll surely find Him,
Let your foolish pride be still;
Follow on with glad rejoicing
Though it leads to Calv’ry’s hill. [Refrain]

3 There’s a blessed invitation,
Precious blood that can atone,
There’s a Christ who still is pleading
For your soul, before God’s throne. [Refrain]

Telegraph, however, it was not until she was a widow with eight children to support that she started writing in earnest. She wrote articles, librettos, nature stories and other works, as well as hymns.
