Lyrics

’Tis so sweet to know the Savior,
That dear friend so kind and true;
Sinner, won’t you serve and trust Him?
Tenderly He loveth you.

Refrain

Won’t you love the precious Savior?
Won’t you on His grace depend?
He will cleanse you, He will save you,
He will keep you to the end.

Jesus is the friend of sinners,
He hath died to save your soul;
Now He offers free salvation,
On His love your burden roll.

Refrain

Do not longer heed the tempter,
Who your every hope would mar;
You cannot yourself make better,
Come to Jesus as you are.

Refrain

Life at best hath many trials;
Oh, you need a friend and guide;
Come today and simply trust Him;
Come, your all to Him confide.
