Come to Jesus, trembling sinner,
With your load of guilt oppressed;
Come to Jesus, He will save you;
Come, and He will give you rest.


Come to Jesus, come to Jesus,
Weary sinner, come to Jesus while you may;
He will save you, He will save you,
Weary sinner, He will save you, come today.

He is waiting, He is ready
Tender, loving words to say;
Will you not accept His blessing?
Give your heart to Him today.


Time is flying, do not tarry;
Haste, while it is called today;
Can you spurn His tender pleading?
Can you turn this friend away?


Do not linger, do not trifle,
Heed your loving Savior’s call;
In His tender heart there’s mercy,
In His arms there’s room for all.
