Is Jesus able to redeem
A sinner lost, like me?
My sins so great, so many seem!
O sinner, come and see.

Refrain

The blood that Jesus shed of old
Was shed for you and me:
And there is room within the fold—
O come to Him and see.

Is Jesus willing to forgive
A rebel child, like me?
Who would not in His favor live?
O rebel, come and see.

Refrain

Is Jesus waiting to relieve
A wanderer, like me,
Who chose the Father’s house to leave?
O wanderer, come and see.

Refrain

Is Jesus ready now to save
A guilty one, like me,
Who brought Him to the cross and grave?
Come, guilty one, and see.
