Lyrics

Come to Christ, the Lord, trusting in His word,
In compassion He will hear your plea;
If you all confess, He will freely bless,
And salvation’s light with joy you’ll see.

Refrain

Come to Christ, the Lord, come to Christ, the Lord,
Leave, oh! leave grim danger’s gloomy way;
Come to Christ, the Lord, come to Christ, the Lord,
In His fold there’s room for you today.

Come to Christ, the Lord, win the blest reward,
Given to the penitent thro’ grace;
Soul, renouncing sin, life anew begin,
Strength implore the rugged way to trace.

Refrain

Come to Christ, the Lord, with a glad accord,
Feeling that your burden He’ll remove;
’Tis a welcome true, sounding still to you
From the depths of His unfailing love.
