H. A. Davis (1867-?)

Come to Jesus, come today,
He will take your sins away;
Come, O come, why do you wait?
Come, while open is the gate.

Refrain

Heed the gentle, loving call,
Taking Jesus as your all.
Then, O then you’ll happy be,
For His glory you shall see.

He is knocking at your heart,
Heed this call ere He depart;
Ask of Him His pardoning grace;
Find in Him a hiding place.

Refrain

Bring your guilt to Him with grief,
He will give you quick relief;
Jesus wept to see your state,
Come, or you may be too late.

Refrain

Cast on Him your every care;
All your sorrows He will share;
He your burdens all will take,
And will never thee forsake.

Refrain
