Lyrics

Come to Jesus, guilt confessing,
He will wash your sins away;
Come, receive His promised blessing,
Come to Jesus, come today.

Refrain

Come to Jesus with your burdens,
Bring to Him your fear and doubt;
He said, Whosoever cometh,
I will in no wise cast out.

Come today, why longer tarry
In the downward road to death?
Jesus all your cares will carry,
If you ask of Him in faith.

Refrain

Come, your angel friends are yearning
In exultant songs to tell
How your weary feet are turning
T’ward the city where they dwell.

Refrain

Come today, let angel voices
Herald thro’ the courts above,
That your pardoned soul rejoices,
Trusting in a Savior’s love.
