Come, ye sinners, poor and needy,
Weak and wounded, sick and sore:
Jesus ready stand to save you,
Full of pity, love and power:
He is able,
He is willing: doubt no more.
Now, ye needy, come and welcome:
God's free bounty glorify:
True belief and true repentance--
Every grace that brings you nigh--
Come to Jesus Christ and buy.
Let not conscience make you linger,
Nor for fitness fondly dream;
All the fitness He requireth
Is to feel your need of Him;
This He gives you--
'T is the Spirit's rising beam.
Come, ye weary, heavy-laden,
Bruised and ruined by the Fall;
If you tarry till you're better,
You will never come at all:
Not the righteous--
Sinners, Jesus came to call.
View Him prostrate in the garden,
On the ground your Maker lies!
On the bloody tree behold Him,
Hear Him cry before He dies,
"It is finished!"
Sinner, will not this suffice?
Lo, the incarnate God, ascended,
Pleads the merit of His blood:
Venture on Him, venture wholly,
Let no other trust intrude:
None but Jesus
Can do helpless sinners good.

Matthew 11:28 Come unto me...
John 6:37 All that the Father giveth me shall come
and him that comethto me I will in no wise cast out.
Revelation 22:17 And the Spirit and the bride say,
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.
