1 Weary wanderer in sin and sadness,
There is one who dearly loves your soul,
Let Him come and give you peace and gladness,
And the heavy burdens from you roll.

Won’t you come and let Him save you now?
Won’t you come and let Him save you now?
All your sins will be forgiv’n,
And your name enroll’d in heav’n,
Won’t you come and let Him save you now?

2 Many years of mercy you have wasted,
Many byways dreary you have trod;
And what bitter pain your soul has tasted,
Why not now repent and turn to God? [Refrain]

3 Come and let Him be your friend forever,
Come and yield to Him your all today;
He has promised to forsake you never,
He will be your constant help and stay. [Refrain]

4 Do not longer spurn His love so tender,
Do not close you heart to Him today;
Crown Him as your King and homage render,
And the summons of your God obey. [Refrain]
