Him that cometh to Me I will in no wise cast out.@John 6:37

Ella S. Clark, in Voices of Praise, by William B. Olmstead et al. (Chicago, Illinois: W. B. Rose, 1909), number 120 (🔊 pdf nwc).

There’s a message full of hope
For the penitents who mourn,
With a heart of sorrow weeping o’er their sin;
For our blessèd Lord has said,
He that cometh unto Me,
I will never cast away, but take him in.

Refrain

Christ can save and keep, we know;
He will wash as white as snow,
’Tis a message full of hope;
Tell it out where’er you go.

There’s a message full of hope,
Tho’ their many sins appear
Like a mountain reaching upward to the sky,
And the spirit low may sink
’Neath the burden, in despair,
And they fear that no deliverer is nigh.

Refrain

There’s a message full of hope,
When at last we bid farewell
To our friends and all those earthly scenes for aye;
For the Master we have loved
Is the pilot who will guide
All the faithful to the land of endless day.

Refrain
