Lyrics

Come to the house of God,
His people gather there;
Come join with them in song,
Come kneel with them in prayer.
Come, for the Spirit calls,
O sinner, calls thee now;
Come while the Savior waits,
Before Him humbly bow.

Come, heavy ladened one,
There’s promise sweet for thee;
Hear now thy Savior say—
Come, weary one, to Me.
Come, all who needy are,
The tempted and the tried;
From self now look away,
To Christ, the crucified.

Come, Jew and Gentile both,
Come all, with one accord;
Come to His courts today,
And gladly praise the Lord.
Come all who love our God,
And bless His name today;
Come worship at His feet,
And to Him humbly pray.
