Come, contrite one, and seek His grace,
Jesus is passing by;
See in His reconciling face,
The sunshine of the sky.

Refrain

Passing by, passing by,
Hasten to meet Him on the way;
Jesus is passing by today;
Passing by, passing by.

Come, hungry one, and tell your need,
Jesus is passing by;
The Bread of Life your soul will feed,
And fully satisfy.

Refrain

Come, weary one, and find sweet rest,
Jesus is passing by;
Come where the longing heart is blessed,
And on His bosom lie.

Refrain

Come, burdened one, bring all your care,
Jesus is passing by;
The love that listens to your prayer
Will no good thing deny.
