Come and be Saved

Full Text

1 Will you not come to him for life?
Why will ye die, O why?
He gave his life for you and me!
O soul, why will you die?

Come and be saved today,
Come and be saved today,
Come and be saved from all your sins today.

2 Will you not come to him for peace?
Peace thro’ his cross alone?
He shed his precious blood for you;
O make his peace your own! [Refrain]

3 Will you not come to him for rest?
All that are weary, come?
The rest he gives is deep and true;
Rest in his love, your home! [Refrain]

4 Will you not come to him for joy?
Will you not come for this?
He gives a joy so sweet and true;
O taste his perfect bliss! [Refrain]

5 Will you not come to him for all?
Will you not “taste and see?”
He waits to give it all to you,
And calls, “come unto me!” [Refrain]
