Lyrics

Come to Jesus, dying sinner,
Your burdens on Him roll;
He will share with you His glory,
He will cleanse and make you whole.

Refrain

Come to Jesus, come today,
Come to Jesus while you may;
Give your life to Him in service,
Come to Jesus, come today.

Come to Jesus, come believing,
He will bear your every care;
He will lead you out of darkness,
To the way that’s bright and fair.

Refrain

Jesus stands in mercy pleading,
Bids you lean upon His breast;
If you’ll trust Him and obey Him,
He will give you peace and rest.
