Lyrics

The Spirit in our hearts
Is whispering, Sinner, come;
The bride, the Church of Christ, proclaims
To all His children, Come.

To him that heareth say
To all about him, Come;
To him that thirsts for righteousness
To Christ the fountain come.

Yes, whosoever will
O let him freely come,
And freely drink the stream of life;
’Tis Jesus bids him come.

Lo, Jesus who invites,
Declares, I quickly come.
Lord, even so; I wait Thy hour:
Jesus, my Savior, come.
