O bur­dened soul, no long­er wait,
But give your wan­der­ings o’er;
Now hum­bly kneel at Je­sus’ feet,
And slight His call no more.


Will you come to the cross
Where hap­py you may be?
Will you come to the cross,
His blood your on­ly plea?
In the cross, bless­èd cross,
Is par­don full and free;
Will you come?
He will save you there!

Behold a foun­tain filled with blood,
He op­ened long ago;
And there your sins, tho’ crim­son red,
Shall be as white as snow.


Behold a straight and nar­row path
That leads to end­less day;
O seek it now thro’ Christ the Lord:
There is no oth­er way.


Then turn to Him in sim­ple faith,
Accept His pro­mise true;
And O! be­lieve with all your heart
That Je­sus died for you.
