Lyrics

Christ is rea­dy to welcome every needy heart,
Every sinner forgiven may be;
Peace and comfort and gladness He will now im­part
Unto all who will answer His plea.

Refrain

When He said Who­so­ev­er,
He included you and me,
And I am glad, I am glad;
When He said Who­so­ev­er,
He meant all who would be free,
And I am glad, I am glad.

Not alone to the wealthy did the Mas­ter speak,
Not alone to the poor who were nigh;
But to all who had wan­dered
And were lost and weak,
Did His sweet who­so­ev­er ap­ply.

Refrain

Come today with your trou­bles,
Come with all your sin,
On His love cast your grief and your care;
He is waiting to make you white as snow with­in,
Waiting now all your bur­dens to bear.
