|COME, ye sinners, poor and needy,
Weak and wounded, sick and sore;
Jesus ready stands to save you,
Full of pity joined with power;
He is able,
He is willing; doubt no more.
|2||Come, ye needy, come and welcome,
Godís free bounty glorify;
True belief, and true repentance,
Every grace that brings us nigh;
Come to Jesus Christ and buy.
|3||Come, ye weary, heavy laden,
Bruised and ruined by the fall;
If you wait until youíre better,
You will never come at all:
Not the righteous,
Sinners Jesus came to call.
|4||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.
|5||Saints and angels joined in concert,
Sing the praises of the Lamb;
While the blissful seats of Heaven
Sweetly echo with His name!
O such mercy!
Sinners here may sing the same.
|Joseph Hart, 1712-68|
