The Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.@Revelation 22:17

O wandering souls, why will you roam
Away from God, away from home;
The Savior calls, O hear Him say,
Whoever will may come today.

Refrain

Whoever will, whoever will,
Whoever will may come today;
Whoever will may come today,
And drink of the water of life.

Behold His hands extended now,
The dews of night are on His brow;
He knocks, He calls, He waiteth still,
Oh, come to Him, whoever will.

Refrain

In simple faith His Word believe,
And His abundant grace receive;
No love like His the heart can fill,
Oh, come to Him, whoever will.

Refrain

The Spirit and the Bride say, Come!
And find in Him sweet rest, and home;
Let Him that heareth, echo still,
The blessèd whosoever will.

Refrain
