Coming to the Savior’s cross,
Hallowed cross, saving cross;
Poor and needy, sin-sick, blind,
Bring thy burdens; thou shalt find
Here a true and tender friend,
At the saving cross.


Hear the invitation—Come!
Why in sin yet longer roam?
Hasten, sinner, hither come,
While yet there’s room.

Coming to the Savior’s blood,
Crimson blood, saving blood;
Precious fount that flows for thee
From the cross of Calvary;
Have a cleansing full and free,
In the saving blood.


Coming to the Savior’s love,
Wondrous love, saving love;
Arms are open to receive
All thy sins He will forgive
If thou only canst believe
In that saving love.


Coming to the Savior’s home,
Blessèd home, eternal home;
Friends and loved ones there we’ll see,
Crowns and palms of victory;
Safe through all eternity,
In that blessèd home.
