Lyrics

Come to Calv’ry’s mount today,
Jesus will meet you there;
Look and live without delay,
Jesus will meet you there.

Refrain

Come to Jesus,
Don’t stay away, my friend;
Come to Jesus,
He calls today.

Rest beneath the hallowed cross,
Jesus will meet you there;
Saving mercy gained for loss,
Jesus will meet you there.

Refrain

Come and join His faithful band,
Jesus will meet you there;
Take His mighty, helping hand,
Jesus will meet you there.

At the blessèd mercy seat,
Jesus will meet you there;
Come with this assurance sweet:
Jesus will meet you there.

Refrain

You’ll find rest in Heav’n at last,
Jesus will meet you there;
And be happy with the blest,
Jesus will meet you there.
