Lyrics

Wondrous love of Jesus! Spread the news around,
Pardon freely offered, what a joyful sound!
Jesus, loving Savior, died to set me free;
Oh, that blessèd whosoever—that means me.

Refrain

Pardon freely offered all who will believe,
Whosoever cometh, Jesus will receive;
Jesus, loving Savior, died to set me free,
Hallelujah! Whosoever—that means me.

Blessèd whosoever, better than my name,
Every soul included, though in guilt and shame;
Jesus brought salvation, present, full and free:
Whosoever is the message—that means me.

Refrain

Whosoever cometh may the promise claim,
Precious blood of Jesus cleanseth every stain;
God so loved the sinner, oh! how could it be?
Whosoever, said the Savior—that means me.
