Lyrics

Jesus! dear name, how sweet it sounds!
Replete with balm for all my wounds!
His Word declares His grace is free,
Come, needy sinner, Come and see.

He left the shining courts on high,
Came to our world to bleed and die;
Jesus, the God, hung on a tree:
Come, thoughtless sinner, come and see.

Your sins did pierce His bleeding heart,
Till death had done its dreadful part;
Yet His dear love still burns to thee,
Come, trembling sinner, come and see.

His blood can cleanse the foulest stain,
Can make the filthy leper clean;
This fountain open stands for thee,
Come, guilty sinner, come and see.

The garments of His shining grace,
His glorious robe of righteousness;
In this array thou bright shall be;
Come, naked sinner, come and see.

No tongue can tell what glories shine
In our Immanuel, all divine;
O that in sweetest melody
Each heart may sing, He died for me.
