1 Wonderful tidings mercy is bearing,
Sweetly declaiming, while the words like gentle music fall,
Jesus is calling, tenderly calling,
Tenderly saying, there is room for all;
Room for all, yes, room for all;
Come and welcome still, whosoever will;
Haste away, no more delay;
Come, o come, the Saviour calls today!

2 Wonderful tidings joyfully sounding,
Hear them resounding from the happy, happy gate of love;
Jesus is calling,—let us adore him,
Gather before him, and seek his love.
He is love and Lord above;
Waiting now he stands, see his blessed hands;
Hear him say, oh, why delay?
Come, o come, the Saviour calls today!

3 Wonderful tidings, still they are ringing;
Sweetly they tell us of a blessed Saviour ever near,
Jesus is calling,—we may believe him;
How can we grieve him, our friend so dear?
He is near, our friend so dear,
Now his tender care all of us may share;
Haste away, no longer stay,
Come, o come, the Saviour calls today!
